NEBO, W.Va. (AP) - State Police say the fatal shooting of a Clay County teenager by his great-uncle appears to be accidental.
Investigators tell media outlets that 79-year-old Alfred Dawson apparently thought he was shooting at a coyote when he shot 15-year-old Dillon Dawson from a tree stand.
The incident occurred Saturday in Nebo.
Dawson was a freshman at Clay High School. The school will hold a candlelight vigil at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
