PHOENIX (AP) -- Authorities say a 9-year-old Tonopah boy has died after being wounded by what was described as a ricochet bullet as a group of family and friends were shooting in the desert near his home Wednesday morning.
A sheriff's spokesman said Wednesday that initial statements from those involved indicated that another person in the group fired the shot that accidentally wounded the boy from a handgun.  The boy was hit in the upper neck.
According to Maricopa County Sherrif's Ofiice Deputy Joaquin Enriquez, there were five people in the hunting party, including the victim's 15-year-old sister, a 15-year-old boy, and two men in their early 20s.
Enriquez said the 15-year-old boy accidentally shot the 9-year-old boy.
