AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- Authorities have arrested a 17-year-old after he said he pulled the trigger of a gun he found and shot another person.

Carlos Mack told police he was walking home when he saw a bag with a handle sticking out of it. The object in the bag was a .357 revolver, which Mack said he took home.

Unaware that it was loaded, Mack reportedly pulled the trigger and shot the other teenager. At that time, Mack allegedly dropped the gun and ran to call for help.
