Clearwater, Florida - A 15-year-old Clearwater teenager is clinging to life after he was shot by another teen. Clearwater Police says as of now, the shooting appears to be accident.
Neaka Boyd lives a few doors from the Browning Street home where the shooting occurred. She and her mother were standing outside when they say they saw their neighbor talking to police on the phone about the shooting.
Boyd says, "I hear one boy ...telling them his friend shot another friend in the face by mistake. She [the shooter]didn't think the gun was loaded."
Neighbors say the shooter is a teenage girl. Michael Kefer says he spoke to the girl's brother and describes the bullet wound.
"He said it went through the mouth," Kefer says.
Police saythe victim is 15-year-old Ryan Greenlee. They've identified the weapon as a 9mm Smith & Wesson handgun.
"I heard there was an argument or something. Ryan got up out of the room andleft. She went back to another room, got the gun, pointed at him said she was 'tired of his bulls***' and pulled the trigger," says Boyd.
Boyd tells us this is typically a quiet neighborhood... except for the house where the shooting happened.
"Their mom is barely home. They throw parties,smoke, drink."
Boyd adds,"They say it was suppose to be a prank, but she didn't know it was loaded."
But she doesn't believe the shooting was accidental."No, not for one minute. Why do that anyway, pull a gun on somebody? Why play with a loaded gun? Why did she point itat somebody? Thebullet passed his mouth."
