A Macomb Township teen is in critical condition after being accidentally shot in the head while at a small gathering in Roseville. 

Roseville Police said the shooting occurred after two people were showing each other their illegal handguns at a gathering of about seven people at a house in the 17000 block of Ivanhoe. 

Around 8:26 p.m. a 20-year-old man from Warren unintentionally fired a shot from one of the handguns, striking a 17-year-old teen in the head. 

The 17-year-old was taken to the hospital and listed in critical condition. 

The 20-year-old is being held at the Roseville Police Department for further investigation, though police believe the shooting was "accidental by all of the people present."
