Police to lay charges over accidental shooting
ABC Online: Monday, 27 February 2006. 15:42 (AEDT)Monday, 27 February 2006.

Wangaratta police say they are preparing to lay charges over the accidental shooting of a boy on a hunting trip near the city last week. The 10-year-old was forced to have surgery on his hand after being struck by a bullet from a high-powered rifle.

Police have been told the rifle accidentally discharged while the vehicle was in motion. Senior Sergeant Dave Ryan says statements have been taken and two people are likely to be charged with firearms offences.

“It was a legally-owned firearm perhaps being used inappropriately, but certainly it was owned by the fellow driving the car,” he said.
