WASHBURN, N.D. (AP) — The McLean County sheriff's office says a teenager is dead after being accidental shot by another teen at a home near Garrison.

The sheriff's office says the 14-year-old boy was fatally wounded Saturday when another 14-year-old was handling the firearm. Sheriff Don Charging says the teenagers thought the gun was unloaded.

Charging would not confirm the victim's name, citing his age. An obituary notice for 14-year-old Alec Bauer of Garrison said he "died from a fatal gunshot wound to the abdomen in a tragic accident that occurred in one of his friend's home just east of Garrison."
