RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A North Carolina boy has died more than a week after his older brother shot him in the neck with an arrow.

Local media outlets report that funeral services are being held Thursday for 7-year-old Daniel Velazquez.

Deputies say the boy’s 11-year-old brother shot him in the neck March 15 at a home in Raleigh. The boys’ mother told a 911 operator her son was shooting at things in the woods when Daniel was struck.

The boy died several days later at a hospital.

Wake County deputies are still investigating but say they think the shooting was an accident.
