Authorities: 19-year-old man injured in accidental shooting

Authorities tell NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune that the man was injured in a shooting that was reported in Harvey early Sunday evening.
Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office spokesman Jason Rivarde says two 19-year-olds were hanging out together when one of them pulled out a gun. While showing the victim the gun, the weapon fired and struck the victim in the leg.
