PAULDING COUNTY, Ga. - Officials say they are investigating a shooting at a Paulding County park.

The Paulding County Sheriff's Office told Channel 2 Action News that they were called to a shooting near Sara Babb Park in Dallas around 12:30 p.m.

Investigators told Channel 2’s Berndt Petersen that two best friends, ages 16 and 18, went to an open field near the park for target practice after the 18-year-old took his father’s gun.

What we’re learning about the victim’s condition, LIVE starting on Channel 2 Action News at 4 p.m.

Police said the 18-year-old was showing off the gun when it went off by accident and shot the 16-year-old in the face.

The park was evacuated after 911 received calls for a possible active shooter. 

Dallas police said the 18-year-old was taken into custody for questioning. 

The 16-year-old was taken to a nearby hospital. Investigators said the boy is alive, but did not say what his condition was.

How does that saying go ? Oh yea, an armed society is a polite society.

I for one am all about 2nd amendment rights, but have absolutely no issue with laws about having to lock up the weapons.  Too many kids getting in trouble with guns that they took without permission.

 he has had surgery , he is in critical condition, the next 24 hours are crucial,   


The parents had the gun locked up in the gun safe, the 18 year old found the keys and took the gun.

So, #1 - he's not a child. He's an adult

#2 - the gun was locked up as it should be

#3 - the ADULT made the decision to take the keys and remove the gun and use it.

 

Sounds like the ADULT 18 yr old is going to be in a world of trouble with the police.

Agreed  i have read were  the parents  are getting the  blame for this, but it is not their fault, they were responsible and locked the gun up in a gun safe. the gun was not left laying out, and the 18 year old, was not a 3 year old  playing with gun out of curiosity.

18 calendar years physically....and, just maybe,  3 years old intellectually?  


Calling an illegal alien an "undocumented worker" is like calling a drug dealer an "unlicensed pharmacist".

 

 

I guess you haven't been to Detroit recently?  Or, Newark or East St.Louis or Gary, IN, or Stockton, CA?

 

You know, those bastions of liberal Democrat government that have been so successful in attracting wealthy, educated leaders and businesspeople.  Progressive people,  who have uplifted the poorer of their brethren, so their city can be that bright example of how well Socialism works.

Looks like he finally turned himself in and was in and out in less than 8 hours. Not sure I agree with the charges, but I am sure there is a possibility of more charges later. For a kid to be in critical condition, I would just think there would be more severe charges. I was told that the kid lost an eye, and I am sure that is just the beginning of his medical problems.
