|Devin Grady, age 11|
From the article and news video:
The boys were reportedly hunting snakes with a shotgun when one of them shot the other in the face.
Morgan County Sheriff Ana Franklin said this is a terrible tragedy and prayers go out to both families.
“One boy is fighting for his life in the hospital and the other is left to deal with the reality that he shot his best friend,” Franklin told WHNT News 19 from the scene. The investigation continues. The names of the boys have not been released.Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
UPDATE (6/11/12): Devin has now died from his injury.
