17 year old North Carolina boy shoots himself playing with guns

A 17 year old North Carolina boy is dead after he and some friends were "playing with guns". This occurred just a few days after his high school graduation.

From an article:
"It's just a senseless tragedy that should never happen," said Skyler's grandmother, Judy Mincey.
The details of the incident are still under investigation, but a Blount County Sheriff's Office spokesperson did say the incident appears to be an accident.
However, the occurrence confused Skyler's grandfather, Jerry Mincey, who said the high school senior had experience with guns.
"We got conflicting stories that they were playing with guns, playing a war game," he said.
Boring just graduated from Heritage High School.  He was the co-captain of the wrestling team and planned to attend Pellissippi State in the Fall.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
