Girl Critical after Marion County Shooting

     Friends of the family say the situation is very serious for the girl who was accidentally shot while spending the day out of school with some friends. The staff at Ore City Middle School is still in shock after the news that one of their own students is fighting for her life suffering from a gunshot wound. 12 year old Megan Achee was shot in the head in a accident on Thursday.

    "You just don't believe it it's just doesn't seem natural that we were talking to her yesterday and now shes in a hospital bed in Shreveport," said Ore City Middle School principal, Neal Henson.

     A group of kids had skipped school and had gathered at a residence in Shady Shores. Megan was sitting on the front porch while a 16 year old boy was target shooting.  Authorities say Megan stood up in the line of fire and was shot in the back of the head.

    "There was not an adult there with them at the time of this incident," said Marion County Sheriff Bill Mccay. She was rushed to L.S.U. Med-Center where she underwent surgery.

    Relatives called school workers saying that her chances of survival look very slim. Police have charged the 16 year old boy with reckless conduct and if Megan dies, there will be more severe charges.
