Vermont State Police say a 15-year-old boy shot and wounded his 14-year-old brother with a revolver they found in a remote cabin in the town of Eden.

Police say the shooting occurred at about 4 p.m. Tuesday.

The names of the boys involved were not released.

Police say several boys went hiking on an old logging road off Vermont Route 100 near the Eden-Lowell town line. During their hike the boys visited an old cabin and found several firearms.

While handling a revolver, the 15-year-old accidentally shot his brother in the groin and lower leg.

All the boys walked the half-mile to Route 100 where they called for help.

Police say the wounded boy was taken to Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington. There’s no word on his condition.
