2 NY teens busted after 1 accidentally shot other

SMYRNA, N.Y. (AP) -- Two upstate New York teenagers have been charged after police say one accidentally shot the other.

WKTV-TV in Utica reports that a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old were charged with felony first-degree reckless endangerment and misdemeanor second-degree reckless endangerment, respectively.

The Chenango County Sheriff's Office says the two teens were pointing rifles at each other last week in the town of Smyrna when the 16-year-old accidentally shot the 17-year-old in the shoulder.

The 17-year-old was treated for minor injuries at Community Memorial Hospital in Hamilton.

The two teens are scheduled to appear in court at a later date.
