When deputies arrived on scene, they found 18-year-old Shane Huber, a resident of the home, conscious and alert with a single gunshot wound to his neck. Huber was flown by the county's Fire Flight to Halifax Medical Center in Daytona Beach.
Detectives looking into the incident reported that Huber was showing his Romania .762X39 mm AK-47 rifle to a friend. Huber handed the rifle to his friend, who believing the rifle was not loaded, pulled the trigger firing the rifle striking Huber.
Detectives believe the shooting was an accident. No one else was in the home at the time of the incident.
No charges have been filed in connection with this incident. Huber's condition is unknown at this time.
