JERSEY CITY -- A pair of teenagers have been charged for their alleged roles in an accidental shooting that left an 11-year-old boy injured, officials said.

The teens were playing with a handgun inside a Marion Gardens apartment on Sunday afternoon when it "accidentally discharged," city spokeswoman Kimberly Wallace-Scalcione said.

A 15-year-old boy was charged with reckless aggravated assault and unlawful possession of a gun, while a 14-year-old boy was charged with obstruction and tampering with evidence, Wallace-Scalcione said.

Sources say the teens tried to cover up the incident and said a bullet was fired from outside the building.

The 11-year-old boy was brought to Jersey City Medical Center after the shooting with injuries described by sources as serious. Scalcione-Wallace said he is now in stable condition.

The boy has since been transferred to Hackensack University Medical Center -- which has a children's hospital -- for continued treatment. Photos show a helicopter landed at a nearby field to transport the boy around 6 p.m. Sunday night.

Adults were present inside the apartment at the time of the shooting, Wallace-Scalcione said. The teens charged in the shooting were released to their parents.

No charges have been announced against the adults who were inside the apartment. It's unclear who the weapon belonged to or how the children gained access to the gun.

JERSEY CITY -- An 11-year-old boy was shot at a housing complex on Sunday afternoon by two children playing with a gun, officials said.

Sources say the shooting occurred inside a Marion Gardens apartment at about 2 p.m. and the boy was seriously injured.

City spokeswoman Kimberly Wallace-Scalcione confirmed two children were taken into custody after they were "playing with a handgun" that "accidentally discharged" in the Dales Avenue apartment.

At least one other child was also being medically treated related to the shooting, though it's unclear the extent of those injuries, sources said.

The gun was recovered from the scene, Wallace-Scalcione said.

Additional information was not immediately available.
