Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, S.D. (AP) - A Plankinton teenager has been charged with aggravated assault after shooting and wounding another teenager.

The Mitchell Daily Republic reports that the 18-year-old was driving eastbound on Interstate 90 Saturday morning when he pointed a pistol at another teenager in the car. The 18-year-old reportedly did not think the gun was loaded and pulled the trigger.

The victim suffered a gunshot wound to the chest and was airlifted to Sioux Falls. His current condition is not known.

Hanson County Deputy Sheriff Casey Tegethoff declined to release any of the teenagers' names. The 18-year-old was also charged with reckless discharge of a firearm, a misdemeanor.
