12-year-old dies in unintentional shooting

12-year-old Kyle Fisher, of Modoc, Indiana, was shot and killed late Saturday when a rifle was unintentionally discharged in his home.

From an article:
According to the report, Mitchell Gililand, 36, told officers he "was placing a rifle in a gun cabinet when it discharged, striking the victim in the chest." 
Efforts were made to resuscitate the victim at the scene. He was pronounced dead at St. Vincent Randolph Hospital in Winchester. 
Kyle would have been a seventh-grade at Modoc Union-Senior High School this fall. His survivors include his father and seven siblings.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
