An 8-year-old boy in Crow Wing County shot his 3-year-old brother in the neck Monday while they were playing in their home. The boys found the loaded .22-caliber rifle leaning against a wall in their parent's bedroom.
The 3-year-old was airlifted to North Memorial Medical Center and is in stable condition. The sheriff's office says no criminal charges have been filed in the case, but the investigation is still open.
