Accidental Shooting Leaves 7-Year-Old Hospitalized

BEND, OR -- A seven-year-old was shot at his home on Hunnell Road, Sunday afternoon. The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office is investigating the incident as an accident.

Detectives say 32-year-old Roy Ipock was "manipulating a handgun" in his living room when the gun went off, striking his son near his armpit. The boy was taken to St. Charles Bend, then transferred to a Portland-area hospital, where he remains in stable condition. 

DCSO obtained a search warrant for the home, collected evidence and cited Ipock for Assault in the Third Degree, Recklesly Endangering Another and Negligent Wounding.
