A 14-year-old boy faces two juvenile counts of aggravated murder in the shootings of his foster father and another man at a deer camp in northeastern Oregon.
The Grant County district attorney's office said Wednesday the boy was arraigned by video in Canyon City and is being held at a juvenile facility.
Sheriff Glenn Palmer says the teen accidentally shot himself in the leg and was held by authorities after being treated at a Boise hospital.
Authorities say the teen shot and killed his foster father, Michael Piete (PEE'-tee), and Piete's uncle, Kenneth Gilliland, both of Baker City. They were at a remote cabin outside Granite on a deer hunting trip.
Defense attorney Katherine Berger had no comment on behalf of her client.
