MILL HALL, Pa. (AP) — An Amish teen was accidentally shot to death by another teen handling a hunting rifle, authorities said.

Samuel B. Allgyer, 15, of Mill Hall, and two other male teens, 13 and 15, returned from hunting and each was handling the gun in a farmhouse Thursday afternoon, authorities said. The 15-year-old fired the rifle thinking it had no ammunition in it, said state police Trooper Nicholas A. Loffredo. But it did have a live round, which struck the victim in the chest.

Police ruled the shooting accidental. Neither of the other two teens was injured.

A few other teens were in the house, in Porter Township, Clinton County, at the time of the shooting. One rode a horse to get help while others offered first aid, witnesses said.
