MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A teenager is charged with a felony in the accidental shooting of his 2-month-old nephew in north Minneapolis.

The 17-year-old faces a single count of reckless discharge of a firearm.

The infant was wounded last Thursday night. The teen turned himself in to police Tuesday.

According to charges filed Wednesday in Hennepin County court, the teen had reloaded the gun after his brother had removed the bullets.
