An 8-year-old boy was recovering from non-life threatening injuries at Duke Hospital Tuesday afternoon after another child shot him in the face using a bow and arrow, according to Cary police.
Three minors were playing in a yard at 2811 Cameron Pond Drive when the incident occurred at about 4 p.m., said Cary police Capt. Randall Rhyne. The 8-year-old boy was struck near his eye, Rhyne said.
It’s unclear whether police plan to file charges.
“We are continuing the investigation into exactly what happened,” Rhyne said.
Never miss a local story.
Rhyne said the weapon was described to him as a “training” bow.
Other details of the incident, such as what the arrow was made of, weren’t immediately available.
