The Town of Lancaster home where the accident happened was buzzing with police activity Thursday. Around 5 p.m. a 10 year old boy and his 14 year old sister were in the back of the house on William Street when the unthinkable happened. Somehow the girl shot her brother in the head using a bow and arrow.

The victim was transported to Children's Hospital where officials say he went into surgery and is in critical condition.

The investigation into the incident is still ongoing and the 14 year old sister of the victim is at home with her family.
