FRANKFORT, Ind. (WLFI) — A 13-year-old boy has been shot in Frankfort and airlifted to an Indianapolis hospital, according to Police Chief Troy Bacon.
It happened Tuesday about 10:20 a.m. in the 900 block of North John Street. That's in a neighborhood on the north side of the city off Kyger Street.
According to police, three juveniles, all in middle school, were hanging out at the home. Police said one of the teens pulled out a gun and it shot it, hitting one of the others in the face. The boy was airlifted and has undergone surgery. Police said he is expected to survive.
Police said they have detained one of the children, pending formal charges. Rodrick Bennett lives above the tenants who called police.
He said he's glad he didn't see it.
"It's crazy that they didn't have a phone to call the police, so they came over here to call the police," said Bennett. "That's why our apartment is involved. It's crazy. Then I looked at the porch and, I guess, it was two drops of blood."
Right now, neither the victim nor the alleged shooter has been named. Police said they won't be giving any further updates until the Clinton County prosecutor makes a decision on charges.
