A 13- year old Henry County boy is dead and authorities say it was one of his closest friends who accidentally pulled the trigger.
Authorities say the two were playing and that 13- year old who fired the revolver did NOT know the gun contained a bullet.
Both boys were seventh graders at Carver Middle School.
The shooting happened around one o'clock today at the home of the teen who fired the shot.
The gun belonged to the boy's father.
Right now the shooting is being treated as an accident but the case will be reviewed next week.

'This is a life-and-death, blood-and-sinew, emotional, painful step for the IRA to make, because it wants this to work.'
It's not quite full disarmament, but it's the CRUCIAL leap Protestant politicians had been waiting for.

SOT David Trimble, leader, Ulster Unionist Party


'It does appear to break new ground. There are some positive aspects to it, some VERY positive aspects to it.'
The move appears to be a reward for face-saving backroom deals by the British and Irish leadership. (Blair-Bruton pix from Friday) First they took the pressure off the IRA, by agreeing to give ALL paramilitary groups ANOTHER YEAR to disarm.
They also agreed to a SECOND key Republican demand -- REINSTATING Northern Ireland's Catholic-Protestant powersharing assembly. The British government suspended the assembly when the IRA failed to commit to decommissioning ...until now. (file assembly)

'It is a truly historic step. For the first time the IRA is clearly committed to decommissioning and the process to get there. I applaud that. I want to thank all involved with this. This is a very good day.'
