GLEN, Miss. - An Alcorn County 16-year-old was killed Tuesday while on a turkey hunting trip.

Travis Eugene "T.J." White II, a sophomore at Alcorn Central High School, was killed when a friend's shotgun accidentally discharged, said Sheriff's Department investigator Houston Brown.

White was pronounced dead at Magnolia Regional Health Center. Brown said the two were hunting just off a county road. The other youth, who has not been publicly identified, told authorities they were tracing a group of turkeys through the woods and his gun went off one time, striking White in the back, Brown said.

"It was totally accidental," said Brown.
