Metro has determined that a teenager who was shot and wounded while sitting at a Metro bus bay Sunday accidentally fired the gun himself.
Officers responded shortly before 8 p.m. to the Naylor Road Station in Temple Hills, Maryland, where they found a 16-year-old boy who had been shot while sitting at the bus bay, a WMATA spokesperson said Sunday.
"Upon further investigation it has been determined the individual accidentally discharged the weapon himself," Metro said early Monday morning.
The victim was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, officials said.
