Sangamon County authorities say a 7-year-old boy who was hurt in an incident near Salisbury Sunday should recover from his injuries. But the boy has been airlifted to a Peoria hospital for further treatment of his wounds.
He was with a group of people who were firing weapons at targets in a rural area off of Stagecoach Road.
One of the bullets may have ricocheted, but it was unclear if the boy was struck by a bullet or a piece of shrapnel. Police say the shooting appears to be an accident no charges have been filed.
