McALESTER, Okla. (AP) The Pittsburg County sheriff says a 12-year-old boy was fatally shot in the head with a pellet-gun by a friend who thought the gun wasn't loaded.

Sheriff Joel Kerns says Justin Ingle was shot with the high-powered gun Friday in McAlester. Ingle was flown to a Tulsa hospital where he died on Saturday.

Kerns said the boy's mother was in another room when the shooting happened. He said investigators believe it was accidental.
