A Different Kind Of Friendly Fire?
A 25 year old St. Lawrence County man is accused of shooting his buddy in the leg because his friend wanted to know what it feels like to be shot.
State police charged Shawn Mossow of Norfolk with first-degree reckless endangerment.
According to police, the shooting happened Monday at approximately 5 p.m. off Southville-West Stockholm Road in the town of Stockholm.
Police said their investigation showed that the 24 year old male victim, also from Norfolk, had had been asking Mossow if he would shoot him in the leg so he would know what it feels like.
Mossow reportedly told police that he finally gave in and shot his friend once in the right leg with a .22 caliber rifle.
The victim was treated at Canton-Potsdam Hospital and then transferred to Fletcher Allen Hospital in Burlington, Vermont, for treatment of a non-life threatening gunshot wound, police said.
According to police, the unidentified man is expected to make a full recovery.
Mossow was arraigned in Stockholm Town Court and sent to the county jail in lieu of $10,000 cash or $20,000 bond.
