A boy is in stable condition after police said his friend had accidentally shot him on Saturday night, a Little Rock Police Department spokesman said in a statement.

About 7:47 p.m. Saturday, officers responded to a residence located at 4107 W. 17th St. in reference to a shooting, the department's spokesman Lt. Sidney Allen said. When police arrived, they found an unidentified boy suffering from a gunshot wound on the side of his face.

Witnesses told officers that the boy was accidentally shot by a friend, who fled the area before police arrived, police said. They said the victim owned the gun that his friend had shot him with.

"His friend was 'playing' with it when it 'went off' accidentally striking [the victim] in the face," Allen said.

Police said the boy was taken to the Arkansas Children's Hospital where he has been listed in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries.

A little clarification is in order here. How old is the "boy"? This might have some bearing on how responsible the "parents" may or may not be. Nice details, Demozette.

Thank God there are so many goddamn guns all over the goddamn country.

I mean, who cares if a few hundred kids get maimed and killed in our country every month or so, as long as frightened men with penis issues can get their calloused hands on ever-more-deadly weapons.

Praise Jesus, right?
