A Montgomery County teen is recovering after being shot in the head inside his home as he and a friend played with guns.

The shooting took place along the 2300 block of Mulberry Lane in Lafayette Hill, Pa. around 3:30 p.m. on Friday, according to police.

The 15-year-old had taken out the weapons, which were stored inside the house, into the kitchen to show them to a 16-year-old friend, according to Whitemarsh Township Police.

While the teens were handling the loaded weapons, one fired, grazing the 15-year-old in the head.

The teen was rushed to Temple University Hospital, treated and released late Friday evening.

Police say their investigation has led them to detain the 16-year-old at the Montgomery County Youth Center. The details as to why he was detained were not released.
