Western Pa. boy, 8, dies after being shot on hunt

PITTSBURGH-Authorities in western Pennsylvania say an 8-year-old boy has died a day after he was accidentally shot while hunting raccoons with relatives.

State police said Rudy Shetler, of Fredonia, was hit in the head when a rifle accidentally discharged at about 10:10 p.m. Monday in a wooded area of Delaware Township, Mercer County. He was taken by ambulance to UPMC Horizon Greenville and then flown by helicopter to Children's Hospital.

The Allegheny County Medical Examiner's office says Shetler was pronounced dead at the hospital shortly before 4 p.m. Tuesday. An autopsy is scheduled Wednesday.
