NSW teen allegedly fired nail gun at girl

A 15-year-old boy has allegedly shot at a girl with a nail gun while she played on some swings at a park in central west NSW.

The 16-year-old girl and her friend ran to some nearby toilets and called for help after the boy allegedly pointed and fired the nail gun while they were at the Cowra park on Friday evening.

A nail struck the girl's forehead and she was taken to hospital with a minor puncture wound, police say.

The boy has been charged with reckless wounding and granted conditional bail to appear at the children's court in February.
