LAMAR, Pa. (AP) — A 15-year-old boy is dead after being shot with a pellet gun at a friend’s house in Pennsylvania.

Investigators say the shooting of Ty Yonkin in Clinton County on Tuesday afternoon appears to be an accident and isn’t considered suspicious. An autopsy is scheduled Wednesday in State College.

Deputy Coroner Zach Hanna says Yonkin was at a friend’s home in Porter Township when the shooting happened. It wasn’t immediately clear how he was shot and the death is under investigation by Pennsylvania State Police and the coroner’s office.

He was pronounced dead at Lock Haven Hospital around 3 p.m.
