|Jason Gregory Spurling, age 14|
Two adults were home at the time of the shooting.
From the article and news footage:
Police believe Spurling was shot and killed accidentally by his 15 year old friend.Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
"This pistol that was used, we are trying to locate where it came from. Obviously, a 15 year old usually doesn't have a firearm. We are trying to find out where it came from. If the gun was stolen or not. At this point we have talked to a few people, but it's really hard to determine where it came from," said Shawn Rhoads with West Plains Police Department.
Police say the teens were playing with the gun and then Spurling was accidentally shot once in the chest. Detectives say there were two adults home at the time. One immediately called 9-1-1 while the other performed C.P.R.
