Alabama 9-Year-old Shot in the Chest - No Problem - There Was No Foul Play

Local news 

The Thursday afternoon shooting of a 9-year-old boy appears to be accidental, said Prattville Police Chief Mark Thompson. 

At this time there is nothing to point to foul play being involved the chief said. 

As of 7:45 a.m. Friday, the chief was unaware of the child's condition. He expects to call a press conference about the incident sometime today. The boy was transfered by helicopter to Prattville Baptist Hospital about 6:30 p.m. Thursday to Children's Hospital in Birmingham. 

Radio dispatch logs show Prattville fire medics were dispatched to a home in the 600 block of Upper Kingston Road at about 5:10 p.m. Thursday for a male subject shot.

I say we need to redefine "foul play."
