FALKNER, Miss (WTVA) — Tippah County deputies are investigating, what they believe to be, an accidental shooting.

It happened just before 1 p.m. Wednesday afternoon in Falkner.  Tippah County Sheriff Karl Gaillard says it appears a 16 year old and a 17 year old were handling a gun and that the gun went off and shot the 17 year old.

No word on the extent of her injuries, but the Sheriff does not beleive they are life-threatening.
