A 16 year old boy is in critical condition today, after being shot at about 11:00PM Thursday night by a 17 year old boy at a home in the 2300 block of East Waterloo Road, in Springfield Township.

Springfield Township Police Chief, Jack Simone, says it appears the shooting was unintentional, and they do not know yet how the teens got hold of the gun, which had been in another part of the home.

The 17 year old who allegedly pulled the trigger, though, was arrested, and is in Juvenile detention now facing charges of Felonious Assault.

Both boys are students in Akron Public Schools, and police say support services are being offered to students.
