Sources tell ABC7's Brad Bell two teens, aged 15 and 16, had cut class from an alternative school and were at the home where one of them lives. An adult was also in the home.

Bell was told that the teens were handling a gun when it discharged.

The second teen who was in the home is being questioned by police.

The first teen was taken to a hospital in critical condition, according to a statement from Prince George's County Police.
