Five Year Old Shot, Recovering

A five year old Lincoln boy is recovering from a gunshot wound. Denzel Casteneda was just playing with his friends Thursday night, when they discovered a sawed-off shotgun under the seat of an abandoned car. The next thing he knew, he'd been shot.

Tracin Ruth knows his four year old nephew and his friends like to play in the old car. What he didn't know was that a friend of his older nephew had put a *loaded*, sawed-off shotgun under the seat, which the four year old found and accidentally shot Wednesday night. Although Denzel's got 11 pellet wounds in his leg, both Denzel's mom and Tracin say they feel very lucky he wasn't more seriously hurt or killed. No arrests have been made, but the incident is still being investigated.
