OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ A 14-year-old Oklahoma City boy is recovering after being shot in the chest with a semi-automatic pistol.

Police say the boy was taken to Presbyterian Hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening.

Family members identified the victim as 14-year-old Prestin Barnhill.

The boy's sister says Prestin was in the garage with two friends at the family's northwest Oklahoma City home when the gun went off about 2:50 p.m. Police did not make any arrests because they say all the witnesses agree the shooting was accidental.
