MOUNT GILEAD — Law enforcement officials believe the shot that
killed a Morrow County teenager Sunday was fired inadvertently
during a hunting trip.
The Morrow County Sheriff’s office
says the death of 15-year-old Trevor Patrick Clark happened when a
shotgun discharged while Clark and another teen were hunting.
Clark was carrying a shotgun while walking along the railroad track
west of Mount Gilead. Clark handed the shotgun to a 16-year-old boy
while walking. The boy shifted his grip on the weapon, causing
it to fire. The shot hit Clark in the left shoulder area.
