An 11-year-old Florida boy allegedly shot two of his Pop Warner youth football teammates after a Monday night practice following a fight over a bag of chips, police said.
The child, who has not been identified by authorities, faces one count of attempted second-degree murder, Apopka Police Chief Michael McKinley said during a news conference Tuesday morning.
Authorities said the boy grabbed a gun from an unlocked box in his mother's SUV and fired toward another teammate, hitting him in the back outside a practice complex in Apopka, Fox Orlando reported.
That same round is believed to have then struck another juvenile in the arm. Both victims, age 13, were taken to a hospital and are expected to recover.
