Authorities say a 13-year-old boy from Wickenburg is in critical condition after being shot Friday night.
Maricopa County Sheriff's spokesman Officer Chris Hegstrom said deputies responded to the shooting around 7 p.m. in the 55000 block of Easy Street in Wickenburg.
Once they arrived on scene they found a 13-year-old boy who had been shot, said Hegstrom. The child was flown to Phoenix children's Hospital to undergo surgery.
On Saturday morning he remained on life support, said Hegstrom.
Hegstrom said the incident continues to be under investigation. The shooting appears to be accidental.
