A 13-year-old boy was killed in an accidental shooting at a south Tulsa apartment complex Sunday, police said.
The victim and a group of boys around the same age were playing with his parents’ gun at the Savanna Landing apartments near 61st Street and Peoria Avenue about 3 p.m., Tulsa Police Homicide Lt. Brandon Watkins said.
Watkins said the boys were passing around the gun, loading and unloading the weapon, and pointing it.
“They eventually got confused, and a tragedy occurred,” Watkins said.
He said the boy’s wound was self-inflicted and that detectives are not planning to pursue charges.
