RAVENNA, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio sheriff says an 11-year-old boy was fatally shot in the head by a teenager in what appears to be an unintentional shooting.

Portage County Sheriff David Doak (dohk) says deputies responded to reports of the shooting at a house in Franklin Township in northeast Ohio around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Doak says the boy was dead when deputies arrived and a male teenager who allegedly fired the handgun involved in the shooting is cooperating with investigators.

Doak says the shooting appears unintentional. He says investigators will consult with the county prosecutor once all information is collected from the scene.

He didn’t release names or the relationship of the victim and the alleged shooter.
