Parsons Police issue correction about charge faced by teen

Parsons Police have issued a correction about one of the charges faced by a 16-year-old allegedly involved in a shooting incident in that city last week.

The teen is being held on charges of 1st degree attempted murder.

However, the “felony possession of a firearm” charge announced in a news release should have been “criminal use of a weapon” — due to the alleged possession of a firearm with a barrel less than 12 inches in length by a person under age 18.

“We apologize for the mistake and are issuing the correction to reflect the correct charge,” said Commander Kyle Wilford of the Parsons Police Department.

The teen allegedly shot at a car with a man inside. No one was injured.

Police says the juvenile had shot himself in the hand on Sept. 17 but no criminal charges were pursued because the incident was treated as an accident that took place with the parent in the home.

The boy’s name has not been released due to his status as a juvenile.
