EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — Friday afternoon a 14-year-old male was reportedly shot in the head while playing with a handgun in South Central El Paso.
KTSM first reported this incident on Friday as a drive-by shooting.
However, police have now revealed information stating that the juvenile and another 14-year-old male were playing with a handgun.
One of the juveniles called 911 and reported the incident as a drive-by shooting, a release said.
The juvenile was transported to an area hospital with wounds that were initially believed to be life-threatening.
The condition of the teen has not been revealed.
Patrol officers searched the area for suspects when they soon discovered the juvenile had lied about the drive-by-shooting.
Charges against the 14-year-old male who made the call will be made through the Juvenile Probation Department, police said.
