An 18-year-old Wichita man accidentally shot his 14-year old sister on Saturday, Wichita police said Monday.

The sister was slightly wounded by shotgun pellets. No charges will be filed, said Wichita police Lt. Doug Nolte.

The shooting took place in the 1900 block of Pinebay, Nolte said.

The man was showing the shotgun to his sister at about 8:20 p.m Saturday when the gun went off. The pellets hit the carpeted, concrete basement floor, and some of them struck the girl, Nolte said.
