State police in Bradford County said an eight-year-old boy is recovering after his brother accidentally shot him with a BB gun.

It happened Sunday in the backyard of a home on Mason Street in Towanda.

The boy’s 14-year-old brother told police they were shooting cans in their yard when he accidentally shot his brother in the stomach.

Police said x-rays show the BB narrowly missed the boy’s spine.
