SANFORD, Fla. (WESH) – A man is accused of shooting a 7-year-old child in the knee at a Sanford home while intoxicated. Authorities said they were called to Advent Health Lake Mary just after midnight Sunday for a child who had been shot in the leg.
The woman said her children were playing with Nerf guns with her friend’s child. Her friend’s brother, Anthony Knuth, was also in the room with the children.
Detectives said the mother told them she walked out of the room, heard a loud pop and ran back in to see that her child was bleeding from his knee.
When the woman asked what happened, the children said that “Anthony shot him,” a police report said.
