(CBS/AP) TUSCUMBIA, Ala. - Police are investigating a shooting in northern Alabama that left 15-year-old Jesse Raine in critical condition on Saturday, in what they're calling a prank gone wrong.
Jesse was taken to the Children's Hospital in Birmingham after getting shot in the head early Saturday morning at a rural home in Tuscumbia. Police said eight teenagers went to the home over the weekend without any adult supervision.
Colbert County Sheriff Ronnie May said a group went outside to play a prank. They flipped off an electrical breaker to turn out the lights' meanwhile while Jesse hid in a closet as part of the prank.
When one boy opened the closet door, Jesse jumped out to scare him. The boy fired a gun, shooting Jesse in the head.
Authorities are investigating the case as an accidental shooting.
