McALESTER — A 12-year-old boy died Saturday after being shot in the head with a pellet gun.
Justin Ingle, 12, was taken to a McAlester hospital Friday after being shot and was flown to a Tulsa hospital where he died Saturday.
“Two boys were playing with a high-powered pellet gun, and one boy pulled the trigger and hit the other in the head,” Pittsburg County Sheriff Joel Kerns said.
Ingle’s mother was at home when the shooting happened but was in another room, Kerns said. She rushed the boy to the hospital in her own car after he was shot.
