A juvenile was wounded in west Gulfport in what appears to have been an accidental shooting, a police spokesman said.
The shooting occurred about 12:06 p.m. Sunday near 19th Street and 42nd Avenue, Gulfport police Sgt. Joshua Bromen confirmed.
The wounded juvenile, a teenager, was taken to a Gulfport hospital by other teens and was treated for a single gunshot wound, Bromen said.
All of the teens are juveniles, he said.
They were looking at the gun when it discharged, Bromen said.
The shooting remains under investigation.
