BAKER, LA (WAFB) -

The Baker Police Department responded to an 11-year-old boy who was shot in the right hand by another boy, who police say is a teenager.

The teenage suspect was arrested Tuesday night and is charged with negligent injuring.

According to Baker PD, the incident occurred Tuesday, January 10 around 3:15 p.m. on Shilo Dr. in Baker.

The boy's grandmother, Lorse Harris, said she tried to bandage the boy's hand before calling 911. "My grandson ran in the house, he said, 'Grandma, I got shot, I got shot, I got shot!' I said, 'Boy, stop playing,' but when I turned around and looked at his hand, the blood was running everywhere," she said.

The boy was transported to Our Lady of the Lake and is in good condition.
