Two kids played with a gun until one took a bullet to the hip Wednesday afternoon, according to officials.

A 16-year-old with a gunshot wound was transported to the hospital after showing up at an East Hall fire station.

He was expected to be released from Northeast Georgia Medical Center later Wednesday, Hall County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Deputy Nicole Bailes wrote in an email.

Someone pulled up to Hall County Fire Services Station 7 Wednesday afternoon, advising “that someone in their vehicle had a gunshot wound,” according to the fire department.

The investigation “determined that two 16-year-old males were playing with a gun at a White Sulphur Road residence when the gun accidentally discharged,” Bailes said.

The fire station is located at 731 E. Crescent Drive north of Gainesville.

No charges are expected, according to authorities.
