Eight year old boy found shot to death in Wyoming

An eight year old Wyoming boy was found shot to death in a field on Saturday. From the article:
Investigators say a friend of the victim, also 8, then lead police to a .25-caliber handgun near the body.
Luce says the sheriff's department is investigating if the boys were playing with the gun or if the companion was directly involved in the shooting. No names have been released.
We don't know yet how the shooting happened or who was responsible. More details will likely follow. But we do need to remember that if another child was involved in the shooting, all guns in the hands of a child or teen must first pass through the hands of an adult.
