Another teenager is dead following a weekend hunting accident.
Police say a 12- year old carrying a gun accidentally shot and killed his 16- year old brother while hunting in Amherst County.
Authorities are not releasing the boys' names.
This is the second such accident between brothers this month.
About a week ago, a 20-year old man shot and killed his younger brother in Franklin County.

The cause of the fire has not been determined, but church officials say they've been told arson has been ruled out. Locklear says they've already started rebuilding the church but it will take at least a year before it's completed. Until then, services will be held at a neighboring church.

A bulldozer accident in Buchanan County killed a man this weekend.
Jesse Jenkins Junior of Bluefield was driving a bulldozer yesterday when it began sinking in a huge pile of coal.
A spokesman for the Virginia Division of Mines said the weight of the bulldozer apparently caused it to sink into a space within the coal.
Jenkins was crushed under the weight of the coal.
The federal Mine Safety and Health Administration is investigating.

In the General Assembly today, Virginia Democrats are expected to outline how they want the 19-99 budget to be shaped.
While Governor Gilmore has caused a sensation with his call to reduce the food sales tax and use lottery profits for public schools, Democrats are expected to focus on the rising costs of attending state colleges and universities.[8G

It's no secret former Governor George Allen is looking to run for the U-S senate in two years, but it's possible Governor Gilmore could follow in his footsteps.
Some say if John Warner retires after this term, Gilmore would be likely to run in his place in 2002.
Political observers note the GIlmore is making a name for himself in national GOP circles.
Recently, he was the featured speaker before the conservative GOPAC group in Washington and met with Speakers of the House Newt Gingrich and Bob Livingston.
Furthermore, he's in line to chair the Republican Governors Association in 2000.
Gilmore dismisses the speculation though, saying his only goal is to do his job.
