A 12-year-old boy from South Carolina was shot and killed Friday by his younger brother during a target-shooting outing, according to CantonRep.com.
“It was an accident,” county Sheriff Dale Williams said Monday, according to the report. “It (shooter) was a juvenile. It was a brother. His brother was 11 years old.”
The victim, Joseph Baily, suffered a head wound from a handgun and was pronounced dead on the scene. The family was visiting a range in Ohio, according to the report. Although the shooting was ruled accidental, local authorities could file charges against whoever left the weapon unsecured.
