SANDSTON, Va. — Authorities say they have found a boy suffering from a gunshot wound after a vehicle crash in Virginia.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports Henrico County police found the wounded child Tuesday night after receiving a report that a vehicle had struck a tree in the Sandston area. Police did not release the boy’s age.

Henrico police Capt. Linda Toney says the wound was not self-inflicted, and that someone had been driving the boy when the crash occurred.

The boy was shot in the upper body and taken to VCU Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

Authorities say they are not looking for a suspect and that there will probably be charges in the near future.
