BAYSE, Va. (AP) - Police say the fatal shooting of a Shenandoah County woman appears to be an accident.

Shenandoah County sheriff’s Maj. Scott Proctor tells media outlets that investigators believe 46-year-old Gina Angela Shoemaker of Edinburg was hit by an errant gunshot.

Proctor says Shoemaker was shot in the head Sunday while in a home in an area north of Basye. An adult and a juvenile were shooting targets a few hundred yards from the home on an adjacent property.

Proctor says the adult and the juvenile are cooperating with authorities. They surrendered three guns to police.

The investigation is continuing.
