WHITSETT, N.C. (AP) - The Guilford County Sheriff’s Office says a 15-year-old boy has died after he was shot to death by a friend.

A news release from the sheriff’s office says another 15-year-old shot the teenager in the chest with a .12-gauge shotgun at a home in Whitsett on Sunday. The victim was taken to Moses Cone Hospital, where he died.

Investigators believe they know where the boys got the shotgun, but sheriff’s office Col. Randy Powers did not release that information, saying investigators were not certain.

Powers said investigators would probably meet with the district attorney’s office this week to determine if any charges will be filed. He said an investigation into the shooting death is continuing.
