NORTH VERNON, Ind. —  A 12-year-old Scipio boy has died at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis from a gunshot wound sustained earlier this week during an accidental shooting.

The death of Seth Box, son of Greg and Stacey Box, of County Road 275 West, was confirmed this morning by Detective Sgt. James Blevins of the Jennings County Sheriff's Department.

At 11:30 p.m. Monday, a 22-caliber rifle discharged while the victim’s older brother was handling the weapon inside the family home in northeastern Geneva Township. The family had been target-shooting earlier in the day, and the older brother had assumed the gun was empty, Blevins said.
