While playing around with guns, a 17-year-old boy allegedly shot a 14-year-old boy on Wednesday, according to the Marion County Sheriff's Office.
The 14-year-old was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The teen told deputies he and the 14-year-old were "playing around" with guns.
The older teen "stated the victim was pointing a .20 gauge shotgun at him" at which time the older teen "picked up a 9mm handgun, pointed it at the victim and accidentally fired the gun," the Sheriff's Office said in a statement.
The 17-year-old was charged with manslaughter and transported to the Marion County Juvenile Detention Facility.
