Police: Teens lied about 14 year old being wounded in a drive-by

Police say the story of a 14




old Florence girl being critically wounded in a drive-by Friday evening on Meadows Farm Road in Florence was a lie.

Major Carlos Raines said four teenagers initially told investigators they were walking home from the store and a car pulled up beside them.

They told police shots were fired and the 14 year old girl was hit, but Raines said that's not what happened.

The teenagers were playing with a gun and it accidentally went off hitting the girl, according to Raines.

He said they were scared and came forward to tell the truth Saturday.

The girl remains in the hospital.

Raines said he isn't sure if the teenagers will be charged. He said it is up to the Twelfth Circuit Solicitor's Office.

We will keep you posted on what happens.
