A Georgia teenager took his own life after accidentally fatally shooting his friend while showing off a gun, police said Tuesday.
The incident happened around 3:15 p.m. Monday in the suburb of Lawrenceville, about 30 miles outside of Atlanta. The Gwinnett County Police Department identified the teenagers in a tweet as Chad Carless, 17, and Devin Hodges, 15.
Hodges was showing off a handgun to a group of four friends in a makeshift shed near a home when the weapon went off and struck Carless, who was sitting next to him, police said. The three teens fled, while one called 911, the department said in a news release.
Carless died from the injury before officers could arrive, according to police.

In a news release Wednesday, Gov. Nathan Deal says the state “is mobilizing all available resources to ensure public safety ahead of Hurricane Florence.”
Deal’s declaration Wednesday covers comes as the National Weather Service’s storm forecast shows a chance that Florence’s track might turn toward the southwest as it approaches the Carolinas later this week.
