9 year old Arkansas boy found dead of gunshot injury

A 9 year old Arkansas boy was squirrel hunting with his family when he disappeared into the woods with a .22 rifle. From an article:
According to the Union County Sheriff's Office, Hank Bollen, 9, was found around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday morning after an extended all night search. Hank's body was found about 200 yards away from his family's deer camp and authorities say he did have an unintended self-inflicted gunshot wound. 
Hank went missing around 11:00 a.m. Monday while he was squirrel hunting with relatives in the heavily wooded area south of U.S. 82 in the Braswell Corner-Shuler Road area near Marysville. 
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
