Investigators say the twins fetched two .22-caliber rifles from their home near Dayton after spotting a snake in a water-filled ditch.

Deputy John Tucker says one of the teens bent over toward the snake just as his brother aimed and fired. Tucker says the victim was shot in the head.

So sad.
Guess no one taught them gun safety, or if they did then not well enough.

I would bet that they knew better. Kids don't always behave to the standards they are taught. They call it growing up.
