Here’s an update to a story from yesterday, the two brothers who were accidentally shot earlier this week in Lawrence Co have returned home. The shooting took place around 4:45 PM on Tuesday on Ramey Branch Road. Investigators said the kids weren’t playing with the gun, a .22 caliber target pistol, but apparently knocked the gun off a table and it went off, shooting a single bullet that hit both boys ages 4 and 11. Officials said the one bullet went through the younger boy’s leg and came to rest inside the older boy’s body. State Police said no charges have been filed, but the case is likely to be presented to a grand jury.
