Noah was critically wounded on Wednesday afternoon when he was shot in the upper chest by his 7-year-old brother.

According to police, the two were playing inside their apartment at 118 N. Extension Road when the younger boy found a rifle-style BB gun, pointed it at his brother and pulled the trigger.

The boys' parents were not home at the time, and they were being watched by their 14-year-old sister. No criminal charges are being sought against the younger brother or the parents, police said.
