Campbell Co., VA - A Campbell County community is struggling with the death of an 11-year-old boy. The sheriff's office says a 13-year-old shot the boy Tuesday afternoon with a hunting rifle. The teen is now at the Lynchburg Juvenile Detention Center charged with felony involuntary manslaughter. Just after noon, one gun shot claimed the life of a young boy and shattered the calm of this Gilliam Road community. Amanda Collins, Victim's Neighbor - "I was very shocked. Actually, I rode up the road when I heard about it, and we saw him, my grandmother and I, laying on the side of the road." Investigators say the boys were returning from a hunting trip. They say the shooting was not an accident, but they're still not sure it was intentional. Capt. Lt. Guthrie, Campbell County Sheriff's Office - "The gun was handled in a manner that was not appropriate, which caused this." Investigators say a 13-year-old boy pointed the gun in the direction of the 11-year-old, and pulled the trigger. They say he thought the gun was empty, but it had been fired earlier in the day. Guthrie - "People get too relaxed when handling firearms, and unfortunately you have to be cautious with them at all times." Both deputies and neighbors say there was no animosity between the two boys. They say for this whole community this shooting is nothing less than a tragedy. Kathy Collins, Neighbor - "It's something they'll carry with them the rest of their life." It’s a neighborhood one child quieter. Amanda Collins - "He would ride his bike a lot. Play with the dogs out in the yard and stuff. He went to school everyday. Seemed like a nice little kid." Investigators tell us another 13-year-old boy witnessed the shooting. They're not releasing any names. They point out; the teen holding the rifle has taken a hunter's safety course.


Tragic.

So what does the pit think will happen to the Shooter?

So it was not necessarily intentional, but definitely not accidental....hmm.


Smart money says they were just messing around and he was pretending to shoot his friend, but didn't know the gun was still loaded.

Who would let a couple of kids handle guns? It was the parents' fault, if anyone's. The 13 year old is an idiot, but even so...

They are saying he took a course before the shooting. I can see how you got confused though.

Not accidental but not intentional? What kinda bs is that?


The gun didn't go off accidently, and he didn't intentionally want to shoot the kid. He was cocking about with what he thought was an empty rifle.

I feel bad for the deceased. The other kid should be dealt Roman justice. Though, this is how I feel about all murderers.

Blame the parents. Why in Satan's name would you let a 13 year old have a gun and go hunting?

Every couple of years around here you hear about some bloody idiot shooting his friend after, immediatly before, or during a hunting trip.

I just find it bad enough how in this world a 13 year old can get his hands on a gun. If it was owned by the parents you would think they would be responsible enough to keep it locked away safely.

Why the hell does a 13 year-old kid have access to a hunting rifle?

I think you can legally use a rifle when you're 12 or so, maybe younger. And since it's a larger gun and hard to conceal, you don't need a permit to carry it. You can carry a pistol without a permit if you don't hide it. Well, that's the way it is up in PA, not sure about down in the south.
