A Florida boy of age 14 has been arrested and charged for shooting his friend Jadon Vaughn, 14, to death, authorities have confirmed.
According to The Columbia County Sheriff’s Office, the boy was arrested on Wednesday, December 26.
Jadon reportedly was visiting the 11-year-old boy and his 13-year-old brother at their home in Lake City, Florida.
The boys were left alone when their parents went out for the night. Investigators said that the kids had wrestled. At one point the 11-year-old brought a pistol from his parents’ room.
The boy allegedly removed the magazine leaving a single round chambered. When the boy pointed the gun at the 14-year-old, it discharged resulting it in his death.
The brothers initially claimed that Jadon threatened them with a knife. But according to, News 4 Jax report, they later admitted that they placed a knife next to Jadon's body because they thought they "would be in less trouble".
Vaughn's family has launched a GoFundMe campaign in order to raise money for his funeral services.
