Authorities say a northern New York man had his friend shoot him in the leg with a rifle because he wanted to know what it feels like to be shot.

State police in St. Lawrence County say the shooting occurred
around 5 p.m. Sunday in the rural town of Stockholm when
25-year-old Shawn Mossow of neighboring Norfolk relented to his
friend's repeated requests and shot him once in the right leg with
a .22-caliber rifle.

The 24-year-old man from Norfolk is expected to make a full
recovery. Police haven't released his name.

Mossow was charged with reckless endangerment. He's being held
in the county jail on $10,000 bail. It could not be immediately
determined if he had a lawyer.
