Authorities say a 12-year-old Sanilac County boy has been taken to a hospital after being shot in the hand by a shotgun that was dropped by his 14-year-old brother.

The Times Herald of Port Huron reports the boy was shot about 6:10 p.m. Monday in Croswell.

The 12-year-old had what were described as serious injuries to his hand. The boys were home alone at the time.
