St. J. teen shoots himself in the foot

Posted: Updated:

A St. Johnsbury teen is recovering from a self-inflicted gun shot wound to the foot.

Police say Gary V. George Jr., 18, was riding in a car driven by Robert D. Pennypacker, 19, of Barnet last week.  George told investigators that he accidentally shot himself in the foot with a .22 rifle.  He said they brought along the loaded rifle in the car in case they saw any coyotes.  George was treated and released from the hospital.  Both men were cited for carrying a loaded weapon in a vehicle.
