Teen killed by BB-gun shot near Reidsville


REIDSVILLE, NC (AP) -- Rockingham County sheriff's deputies are
investigating the death of a teenager who was found in the woods
near Reidsville with a BB gun shot to the head.

The News & Record of Greensboro reported the 14-year-old boy was
found in a remote, heavily wooded area near the county landfill
Sunday evening after another boy had stopped a motorist on a nearby
road to ask for help searching for the teen.

Sheriff's spokesman Dean Venable says various law enforcement
and emergency agencies responded, using bloodhounds and helicopters
in the search.

Venable says the victim did not appear to have other injuries.
It was unclear how many people were in the woods at the time. No
charges have been filed.
