A 16 year-old is in custody after police say he accidentally shot a Mt. Morris man in the stomach.
This happened around 2:15am at an apartment on W. Washington St. in Oregon. Police say the gun went off as the suspect showed it to the 20 year-old victim. The victim was rushed into emergency surgery.
The teen hasn’t been charged yet.
Investigators say the gun was stolen, but no one reported the theft. It’s a .45 caliber semi-automatic handgun and it may have been taken from a car in Oregon within the past year. Investigators ask the owner to claim it.
