A 14-year-old freshman at a Louisiana high school was accused of shooting himself with a handgun after he was allegedly told by a teammate to serve him with a water gun.
Jordan B. Thompson, a sophomore at Saint Martin High School in Lafayette, Louisiana, was playing a basketball game at his house on March 4 when he went to the bathroom.
A female teammate came over and told him to serve the boy a water pistol.
She also asked him if he was ready for a challenge, and he said he was.
Thompson was shot in the right hand.
Thompson was taken to a hospital and is in serious condition.
The Lafayette Police Department said the student was not arrested for the incident.
A district attorney declined to file charges.
