The Clark County Sheriff's Office confirmed Thursday that the suspect in an accidental shooting is actually a teenager and not an adult as he had told authorities.

Sheriff's deputies arrested the teenager after an accidental shooting on July 2, 2013, in Beavercreek.

The teen was originally charged as an adult with felony aggravated battery with use of a deadly weapon.  Clark County Sheriff Bart May says those charges have been dropped after deputies reviewed the teenager's birth certificate and confirmed he was 17, not 21.  He was then moved to the 5C Juvenile Detention Facility.

According to reports, the two teenagers had gotten off work around 4:00 p.m., on Tuesday, July 2, when one of them pulled a .22 caliber rifle out of the van, pointed the rifle which he was thought was unloaded towards the boy and pulled the trigger. The rifle fired and a round struck the boy.

The juvenile sustained non-life threatening injuries and was taken to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in stable condition.
