Authorities say a 17-year-old in Little Rock accidentally shot himself in the hand while walking Thursday afternoon on West 28th Street.

According to a Little Rock Police Department report, the teen told investigators he was walking west near Jackson Street with the gun in his left hand when it discharged and shot the index finger on his right hand. It happened about 2:40 p.m. No other injuries were reported.

The juvenile, whose name was not released, said he threw the gun down and ran to a friend's house nearby. The friend then took him to St. Vincent Hospital, where he received treatment for the non-life-threatening injury.

Police went back to the scene to look for the gun but didn't find it.

So, was he arrested for being in possession of a hand gun while under the age of 21?

Sounds like a big fat lie to me... Shoot YOURSELF and throw your gun down and run?
Not hardly...

I'm sure he passed the background check to possess that gun.
