Arrow in neck wounds boy, 7, in Wake County

An 11-year-old boy shot his 7-year-old brother in the neck with an arrow Sunday at a Wake County home off Old Stage Road, the sheriff's office said.

Deputies said the wounded boy was rushed to WakeMed Raleigh hospital for treatment, but his condition was unknown.

The boys names were not disclosed. Capt. James Stevens, sheriff’s office spokesman, said the incident appeared to deputies to have been an accident.

Deputies went to 1110 Swift Creek Lane in the Green Spring Valley of Raleigh mobile home park about 12:45 p.m. after being told someone was hurt there, Stevens said.
