SILVER LAKE, OR -- A Lake County teen was shot and killed by his best friend late last week, according to investigators in the small community of Silver Lake, about 50 miles southeast of La Pine.
When Lake County deputies arrived at the scene, Thursday afternoon, they found the 13-year-old boy shot in the chest. They administered CPR but he died at the scene.
State Police and the Lake County Sheriff’s Office are investigating, along with the District Attorney’s Office. They say, at this point, it appears the gun was unintentionally fired by another 13-year old.
