Local news reports

The September 29th shooting which killed Stoughton High senior David Wade, long understood to be an accident, has officially been ruled as such, the office of Norfolk Country District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey announced in a press release Friday afternoon.

Wade, 17, suffered a gunshot wound to the chest at his Turnpike St. home. He was accidentally shot by his 21-year-old brother.

"The investigation into the September 29, 2012 shooting death of David Wade in his Stoughton home has concluded that the shooting was accidental, the pistol was lawfully possessed and criminal charges are not warranted," the release states.
It was just an accident. What the heck.
