FELLSMERE, Fla. - A teen has been airlifted to a hospital after being shot in what the Indian River County Sheriff's Office is calling a hunting accident.
The incident happened around 3 p.m. near 134th Court and 99th Street in Fellsmere.
Gustavo Severino, according to his aunt, was the 15-year-old boy shot in a hunting accident in Fellsmere.
Jasmine Severino says her 15-year-old nephew was with another 15-year-old relative and a 15-year-old friend in a orchard hunting, when the friend accidentally shot Gustavo in the leg Tuesday afternoon.
He was airlifted to Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children in Orlando where she says he underwent surgery late Tuesday afternoon. He's expected to survive.
