BELLEVUE

The small, circular bullet wound on Joseph Magyar's belly is about the size of a cigarette burn.

Joseph, 14, and his close friend Austin Perry, 15, were fooling around at Austin's home in the 1000 block of W. Main St. in Bellevue when Austin pointed his .22-caliber rifle at Joseph and pulled the trigger, police said.

Joseph said Austin did not believe the gun was loaded. He found out with a loud bang and rush of horror that the gun contained ammunition.
