DECATUR, Texas (AP) — A 9-year-old boy has died after authorities say he was accidentally shot in the chest by his grandfather who was hunting in Wise County.

Dallas-Fort Worth media outlets report Callen Little was accidentally shot and killed around 10 a.m. on Saturday. Authorities say it happened at the 9 Bar Ranch that his grandfather owns just outside of Decatur.

According to Wise County Sheriff David Walker, the boy ended up in the path of his grandfather's shotgun when he left the hunting stand.

Walker says the investigation is ongoing, but that signs seem to indicate the shooting was an accident.
