On Monday December 2 around 5:30 p.m., Bedford County 911 dispatchers received a call from Saunders Road reporting an 11 year old child had been shot in the leg with a bow and arrow. Deputies were dispatched and after arriving on the scene learned that the 11 year old victim had been transported to the hospital by a relative. After further investigation it was determined that a 15 year old male shot the victim with a blow gun not a bow and arrow.
After receiving conflicting stories from the victim and suspect, the suspect was arrested for malicious wounding. He was taken into custody and transported to the Lynchburg Detention Center.
