Police line tape crime

Deputies continue to investigate after a boy said he was shot Wednesday by men who came into his home and took his video games.

An incident report released Thursday says the 13-year-old boy told deputies that after he was shot, he took a nap before going next door to his aunt's house to ask for help.

The incident happened sometime in the afternoon -- possibly around 2:30 p.m. -- but there were no other witnesses besides the boy. Deputies were dispatched to the aunt's residence after she called 911 just before 4:30 p.m.. The boy had come over to her house with a towel wrapped around his left thigh. He told deputies he was in mild pain. 

The report -- which does list any names -- describes the boy's injury as an "apparent gunshot wound" to the thigh. EMS treated him at the scene before taking him to a hospital.

The boy said he was at home -- he lives next to his aunt -- when he heard what sounded like the backdoor being kicked in. Then, the boy said, two men wearing ski masks came inside. One of them had a handgun and shot him, the boy said. The men grabbed the boy's video games and cell phone before leaving the house, heading south down County Line Road.

The boy said his assailants had slim builds and "seemed really young."

After the men left, the boy wrapped his thigh in a towel and then went to his room and took a nap. Two hours later, the boy said, he woke up and went over to his aunt's and asked her to call 911 or take him to the hospital. She said she arrived home about 15 minutes before the boy came over.

The boy's father arrived home shortly after EMS. 

Statements were taken from the aunt and father, and investigators processed the scene.
