Ohio boy 15, killed in accidental shooting

EDISON, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a 15-year-old central Ohio boy died when he was accidentally shot by another teenager.

Morrow County Sheriff Steven Brenneman says that 15-year-old Trevor Patrick Clark died Sunday in Edison, north of Columbus. His body was found at about noon on some railroad tracks.

The sheriff said friends were walking in the woods along the tracks. Clark had brought a weapon with him and passed it to a 16-year-old friend, the sheriff said. The friend did not know that the weapon was loaded and accidentally shot Clark.

The name of other teen hasn't been released, and the investigation continues.
