A 17-year-old boy was charged with accidentally shooting his friend in the back with a stolen handgun, officials said.
The incident occurred at a house in the 11400 block of 60th Terrace North in unincorporated Seminole about 11:15 p.m. Saturday.
The victim, who also is 17, was taken to Bayfront Health St. Peterburg for treatment of serious but non-life threatening injuries, a Pinellas County Sheriff's Office report said.
When deputies arrived, the victim and three other boys were found at the residence. The victim told deputies he was accidentally shot by one of his friends at the house.
The 17-year-old who was arrested told deputies at the scene the shooting was a result of a home invasion robbery and they did not know who shot the victim.
