FOND du LAC (AP) — The Fond du Lac County District Attorney wants to charge a teen as an adult for allegedly shooting an arrow that struck a seven-year-old.

The 16-year-old Campbellsport boy faces second-degree reckless injury and obstructing charges for the May 20th incident. Sheriff Mick Fink says the teen told police he was shooting at a squirrel and then heard a child scream.

He says investigators determined the arrow was fired from a deck at an apartment complex around 80 yards from where Aryanna Schneeberg was struck. The girl is recovering at home.

District Attorney Dan Kaminsky says he has petitioned to try the teenager as an adult. He says a judge will decide the matter at a future court date.
