October 06, 1998|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

A teen-age boy shot in the throat with an air rifle yesterday in Union Mills was the victim of an apparent accident, state police in Westminster said.

The boy was wounded about 4: 05 p.m. by a friend at a home in the 4100 block of Rinehart Road, a police spokesman said. The injury did not appear life-threatening, the spokesman said.

The boys, about 16 or 17, were not named because of their ages, police said.

Medical workers immediately requested a state MedEvac helicopter, but flights were grounded by poor weather, police said.
