TEEN KILLED WITH HUNTING RIFLE

By CP

1 January 2004

ACTON, Ont. -- A 17-year-old boy has been charged with second-degree murder after a 15-year-old boy was shot with a hunting rifle.

The teen was shot yesterday while he was with friends at a neighbour's house, said a woman whose 11-year-old son was present at the time of the shooting.

"I saw my next-door neighbour and my son (the 11-year-old) come running out of her house," the woman said. "My son said, 'Mom, (the 15-year-old's) been shot."

"I ran over and saw him lying on the living-room floor. It was just awful," she said.

The woman said her son told her one boy was showing his friends a deer rifle and then loaded a bullet into its chamber.

"Want to see something neat?" was what the 11-year-old told his mother was said before the gun was pointed and then discharged.

The boy was pronounced dead at hospital.
