GPD responds to call of 13-year-old with gunshot wound


Officers of the Griffin Police Department on Tuesday responded to a call at WellStar Spalding Regional Hospital regarding a 13-year-old child who sustained a gunshot wound to the leg.

According to a press release issued by the Griffin Police Department, the wound was allegedly self-inflicted.

Officers met with the wounded boy and his parents at the hospital where the child allegedly admitted he mishandled the weapon, accidentally discharging the gun and striking himself in the leg.

No charges have been filed in this incident, however the investigation remains active and ongoing.



  1. Parents, please make sure your kids can’t mishandle weapons. Do not leave the clip or magazine in the gun if stored in the home.
    Put the gun in a locked security box and promote a home where the first mission of defense is not running off to go get a gun.
