One local teen suffers serious injuries following a fight with an elderly man.
The Clay County Sheriff’s Office says a man in his 70’s approached three teens, who were at his private storage shed on Swarthmore Street, off CR 214, in Keystone Heights. The man was holding a shotgun and, during an altercation with the teens, it either malfunctioned or discharged.
Investigators say that injured the man’s hands and sent one teen to the hospital with serious injuries.
The reason the teens were on the scene is still under investigation.
