(Newser) – Austin Wiseman, the 12-year-old found dead in his grandparents' Ohio home along with his 9-year-old half brother Wednesday, actually shot the younger Blake Campbell, authorities say. Each boy died of a single gunshot wound to the head, and it's not clear whether the younger boy's shooting was intentional or an accident. "I don't know if we'll ever know," the Jackson police chief tells the AP. The bodies were found in an upstairs bedroom of the home, where both boys lived, WSAZ reports. The grandparents were away at the time.

All of these stories are so incredibly sad. Children this age should be out running around, playing and having fun, not dealing with these horrendous adult issues. I am not anti-gun, but PLEASE do not leave them where kids can get to them! There should be severe penalties for people who do so.

I feel so sorry for the boys parents. Where were the parents at the time? They were only children. Children that young usually do not commit suicide . Even if one of the kids shot his brother by accident, I do not see him than turning the gun on himself. ....Are we sure there wasn't a third person in the home at that time?
