Teenager shot in head during home invasion prank, at a home in Alabama, and it looks like no charges will be filed.
The 15-year-old teenager, Jesse Rainey, who is in critical condition, has been transferred to the Children’s Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama.
The teens were reportedly good friends and a total of seven teenagers were spending the weekend at a home that belongs to the grandmother of one of the boys.
It appears there was no parental supervision at the home.

Some of the boys decided to play a prank on their friends by faking a home invasion.
According to ABC news, Colbert County Sheriff Ronnie May said, ”
One of the young men cut the lights to the house, then a few of the the other guys snuck back inside, wanting their friends to believe there was an intruder.
The teens that were in the house were apparently in the process of using flashlights, attempting to find the switch box, when Rainey jumped out of the closet.
When Rainey jumped out of the closet, his friend allegedly dropped the video game he was holding, and fired a shot into the teen’s head with a 38 caliber handgun.
The teens immediately called 911 to get help for their friend, however what is troubling is why a group of young boys were at a home alone, apparently without any adults present.
Further, why did one of the teens have a loaded 38 Caliber handgun?
Even if some of the boys were a bit older, they can’t be that much older since they all reportedly attend Colbert Heights High School together.
After all, Jesse Rainey is just 15 years old!
It appears that no charges will be filed against any of the teens because it was apparently an accident, a “boys will be boys” prank that went wrong!
Although the teens may be “nice boys”, how will they ever learn responsibility with a lack of parental supervision coupled with a lack of any consequences being levied against them, for their actions, by authorities?
Unfortunately, that seems to be a major problem with today’s society.
