Personal injuries are always terrible events for one who is injured and for the injured’s friends and family. Those feelings of fear and horror are only compounded when there is a child involved. Everyone should have a stake in keeping children safe from harm, and in that same light, those who harm a child, even accidentally due to willful carelessness, should be held responsible.
Newton police are still investigating an incident in which resulted in the injury of an elementary school-age boy and an adult male.
The boy was shot in the hand and treated and released the same day, according to authorities. He was taken home to recover.
The man, who was believed to have fired the weapon, was taken to Carolinas Medical Center, where he was listed in critical but stable condition. According to reports, the suspect was unable to communicate, so no information has been learned from him thus far.

No charges have been filed at this point in time.
