WHITE LAKE TWP. (WWJ) – A Waterford Township teenager is in critical condition after he was shot in the head during target practice.

According to White Lake Township police say the 17-year old victim was dropped off at Huron Valley Hospital Sunday afternoon by two friends — ages 16 and 18 — who then took off.

An investigation revealed the three were shooting along Grass Lake Road near McKeachie when the 17-year-old was struck by a bullet. Monday morning, police said the teen was on life support at Royal Oak Beaumont Hospital.

An investigation is ongoing.
