Posted: Updated:

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Police say a Rapid City teen is hospitalized in critical condition after she was shot in the head.

Authorities say police were called to an apartment building in Rapid City about 3:30 a.m. and found a 17-year-old girl with one gunshot wound to the head.

Police say two 17-year-old girls and a 22-year-old man had been drinking and handling a .22-caliber rifle. One of the girls was holding the rifle when it fired at the other girl.

The shooter was taken into custody on two warrants for failure to appear in court. Additional charges are possible.
