A 14-year-old boy is being treated for non-life threatening injuries at a Fairbanks hospital after he was accidentally shot.
KTVA-TV reports that Alaska State Troopers were notified of a gunshot wound victim Thursday.
Officials say their initial investigation shows the teen was shot when he grabbed a pistol by the barrel while his 17-year-old brother was manipulating the gun.
No foul play was suspected. Officials did not say if any charges would be filed.
