7-year-old boy accidentally shot to death

MERCER, Pa.

A 7-year-old boy was fatally shot in the chest outside a hunting and camping supply store this morning.

The emergency call came in to the Mercer County 911 Center at 10:53 a.m. from Twigs Reloading Den at 8388 Sharon-Mercer Road in East Lackawannock Township, a 911 supervisor said.

The Mercer police and fire departments, an ambulance, State Police and the county coroner were dispatched to the scene.

The boy’s father said a handgun in his pickup truck discharged accidentally, striking the boy as he sat in a booster seat; and emergency responders’ efforts to revive the boy were unsuccessful, according to 21WFMJ-TV.
