Nine-year-old in ICU after being shot with pellet gun by cousin
BATON ROUGE, La. - A 9-year-old boy is in the Intensive Care Unit after being shot with a pellet gun by his younger cousin.
Anthony Gray was playing with his 7-year-old cousin Friday afternoon when they found a pellet gun that was left out by a family member.
The younger of the two accidently shot Gray in the head. The pellet penetrated his brain.
He has since undergone two surgeries to remove the pellet. He will go into brain surgery again Monday morning. Gray is expected to live.
