Boy, 9, killed in accidental shooting

CRYSTAL SRINGS, Miss. —

Authorities say a 9-year-old Raymond boy died after being shot at a home in Copiah County.
 
Coroner Ellis Stewart identified the victim as Isaac Tervino.
 
Undersheriff Derrick Cubit tells WLBT TV Tervino was with two other children in a bedroom of the home on Highway 18 in the northwest part of the county. Cubit said the two other boys were brothers and Tervino was their cousin. The adults were reportedly in another room of the house eating.
 
Cubit says one of the other children found a gun, picked it up and fired, striking Tervino above the right eyebrow.
 
He says the victim was airlifted to University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson where he died.
 
Cubit says the shooting appears to be accidental, and no charges have been filed.
