It was not a good New Year's Eve for this family. An 8 year old South Carolina boy was shot and killed accidentally by a family member. From an article:
Bennettsville Police were called to a home on Fayetteville Avenue, December 30, for an eight year boy who was shot.
LT. Larry Turner said the child was accidentally by a family member.  The child was taken by ambulance to Marlboro Park Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
Marlboro County Coroner Tim Brown, identified the child as Easton Brudger, from Clio.  He said Brudger was visiting his father in Bennettsville.  He died from a single gunshot wound to the abdomen.
