From WMCTV.com

EVENING SHADE, Ark. (AP) - Sharp County authorities say a 14-year-old boy has been killed in a hunting accident in northeast Arkansas.

Police told KAIT-TV (http://bit.ly/rDXsBn) the teen was hunting with another 14-year-old and a 16-year-old near Evening Shade on Sunday when the victim began climbing down the steps of a hunting blind.

Authorities say as the other 14-year-old began to climb down the steps, his rifle discharged and struck the victim..

The boy's name wasn't released. His body has been sent to the state medical examiner's office for an autopsy, but investigators say no foul play is suspected.
