7-year old Louisiana child unintentionally shot by another child

A 7-year old was shot to death by another child, in Athens, Louisiana.

From an article:
A 7-year-old child died tonight after being accidentally shot by another child, Claiborne Parish Sheriff Ken Bailey said.
An investigation is under way; however, Bailey expects the incident to be ruled an accident. “It’s just a tragic, tragic thing.”

The shooting was reported after 5:30 p.m. at a home on Kemp Road, which is off state Highway 518 about 5 miles west of Athens. The child was flown from the scene to LSU Hospital in Shreveport, where he was pronounced dead, Bailey said.
Neither the victim’s name nor the name of the other child, who is related to the victim, was released tonight.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
