May 15, 2012 at 4:42 PM

STOCKHOLM, N.Y., May 15 (UPI) -- Police in New York state said they arrested a man accused of agreeing to do a favor for a friend and shoot him in the leg.

State Police said Shawn Mossow, 25, of Norfolk allegedly shot a 24-year-old friend in the leg with a .22-caliber rifle Sunday in Stockholm because the other man was curious about what it would feel like and asked him to take the shot, the Potsdam, N.Y., publication North County This Week reported Tuesday.

The victim was treated for a non-life-threatening gunshot wound and is expected to fully recover.

Mossow was charged with felony first-degree reckless endangerment and jailed in lieu of $10,000 cash bail.
