A Florida teenager was accidentally shot and killed while at a gun range with his family.
The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office said 14-year-old Stephen Brumby was at the High Noon Gun Range with his dad and two of his siblings Sunday. Investigators say William Brumby, Stephen's dad, accidentally fired the bullet that hit the teen.
Officials say the 64-year-old dad was shooting and one shell casing ricocheted off the nearby wall and fell into the back of his shirt. In an attempt to remove the hot casing, Brumby reached behind his back with the hand that was holding the gun and accidentally fired another bullet.
