Did the shot scare off a burglar or home invader?
ELKHART — Elkhart police said it appears a 14-year-old boy accidentally shot himself and his 6-year-old sister after getting spooked by loud banging and yelling at the front door.
This happened at a home in the 300 block of East Carlton Avenue around 7:45 p.m. Monday. The boy and his sister were taken to Elkhart General Hospital with injuries that do not appear to be life threatening. The boyfriend of the children's mother told WSBT that the girl was taken to a Fort Wayne hospital to make sure there was no damage to her artery.
