‘Elijah Horne told a judge Thursday that one of his friends shot him in the face after an argument about a messy room.
Elijah, 13, testified that his 15-year-old friend was upset with him July 10 when he walked into his Walnut Hills bedroom and found it in disarray. Elijah, who was spending the night, had said he didn’t do it.
But he said his friend pulled a gun from under the mattress and shot him.
The bullet went through his cheek and remains lodged in his neck.
“He just came in kind of crazy,” Elijah Horne said.’
