Albany police have arrested a 15-year-old boy in an accidental shooting.

It happened Christmas Day on Delaware Avenue.

Police say the teen had a gun in his coat pocket.

An 8-year-old boy found the gun and accidentally shot himself in the hand.

The teen's name is not being released due to his age.

He's also charged in a stolen vehicle investigation from last August.
