Boy shot during family Easter gathering

ARDMORE, Ala. (AP) - Investigators say a north Alabama boy was accidentally shot during a family Easter gathering.

Authorities say a person was in a backyard shooting a pistol for target practice during a family Easter get-together in Ardmore on Sunday when a bullet ricocheted off a tree. A slug hit a boy, who was taken to a hospital in Huntsville but is expected to recover.

Investigators say the shooter was apparently unaware children were playing in the area.
