Prairie View Student Recovering From Gunshot Wound

By  | 

A 19-year-old Prairie View A&M student is recovering after being shot in the face earlier this week.

It happened in a dorm room, and now two other students face charges.

Four male students -- all age 19 -- were handling a pistol Wednesday when the gun went off.

The bullet hit one of the students in the right cheek.

The injured student -- who's from Austin -- was not seriously injured.

Campus police consider the shooting accidental.

Both the student who was holding the gun and the student who brought the gun to the dorm are now facing charges.
