A boy who grew up in Chazy was killed Tuesday in an accidental shooting in the town of Fort Edward.
Authorities say Gary Cota, 13, was handling a shotgun with a friend in a bedroom of the Cotas' home when the gun went off.
Police say they haven't determined yet which of the boys was holding the gun when it went off. The victim's parents and several other children were home at the time.
Cota and his family reportedly moved to Fort Edward from Chazy last year and the boy still had many close friends in the North Country.
