A Union Parish teen died Thursday after an accidental shooting.
Union Parish Chief Criminal Deputy Bill Webb said the sheriff's office was called to a shooting around 1:13 p.m.
Webb said it appears a 14-year-old boy was in the woods target shooting with an older sibling when he was shot once in the head. Investigators believe a .22-caliber rifle caused the wound.
The victim was transported to Glenwood Regional Medical Center. Medical staff revived the teen, who was transported to Shreveport. He died about 4:04 p.m.
"It just appears to be a terrible accident right now," Webb said.
Webb said the name was not being released pending notification of relatives. The body will be sent to Little Rock for an autopsy.
