Taunton police said the incident happened around 12:15 p.m.in the area of 100 Highstone St.

The Taunton Daily Gazette reports that an 80-year-old victim told police he wired $10,000 through Western Union when a man said his grandson had been involved in a crash and was under arrest in CT. The two boys are neighbors and live near the scene.

Members of the group allegedly said something that threatened the 13-year-old, so he allegedly went inside his home nearby, unlocked a gun safe and retrieved his mother's rifle.

The alleged shooter, a 13-year-old, has been arrested and placed in a juvenile detention facility, while his 12-year-old victim remains in stable condition at a MA hospital.

The suspect ran home after the shooting and locked himself inside.

Police arrested the 13-year-old boy as his home. He is being held by the Department for Children, Youth and Families.

The 13-year-old faces charges of assault and battery with a unsafe weapon and discharging a weapon within 500 feet of a dwelling.
