A 13-year-old boy shot himself in the hand and a 14-year-old boy was injured by the same bullet Monday in Victorville, police said.
Both teenagers were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds, officials said.
The incident was reported around 7:40 a.m. when Victorville police received reports that a person with gunshot wounds had run inside a Walmart in the 11800 block of Amargosa Road.
Deputies from the Victorville Police Department responded to the scene and found the shooting occurred in a desert area around the mall.
Police say the two teens were in the area together when the 13-year-old fired the gun, striking each other in the hand. The same bullet then hit the 14-year-old boy in the lower body.
A handgun was located at the scene, officials said.
The incident, including how the weapon detonated, is still under investigation.
