The sheriff’s office said the shooting was an accident but is investigating. An autopsy is scheduled with the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office.

The boy’s sister has started a GoFundMe page, which read, “Doctors could not save his life as he was shot in the spinal cord.”

“He was 12 years old and only a few months before he was 13,” she wrote. “We hope he is happy and safe wherever he is and we hope he is with God now.”
