KALAMAZOO, Mich. – A shooting incident that seriously injured a 17-year-old girl Wednesday morning is being considered an accident.
The girl was allegedly wounded by a 15-year-old boy about 1:30am in the Country Meadows Apartments Wednesday. Police say the case has been turned over to the Prosecutor’s office for review, but they say the shooting was not intentional.
They allege though that the gun used in the incident was stolen. The Prosecutors Office has petitioned charges for the teen in Family Court on three counts: Receiving and Concealing a Stolen Firearm, Larceny of a Firearm and Careless, Reckless or Negligent Use of a Firearm Resulting in Injury. The teen remains in custody at the Kalamazoo County Juvenile Home.
The girl was seriously injured, but police say her condition improved Thursday.
