A 12-year-old boy is expected to survive after he was shot in the face by an 11-year-old friend Friday in Camden, police said.
The boy was accidentally shot around 8 a.m. inside his apartment as the two boys prepared to leave for school, reports say. The 12-year-old, who was shot around the nose area, is not expected to have any brain damage as a result of the trauma.
The handgun was recovered by police after an extensive search of the apartment complex.
No charges have been filed, but an investigation is still underway into how the minors acquired the weapon.
