He was shot dead by the guard in the truck.

A 15-year-old Alabama boy is in critical condition today after he was shot in the head by a friend during prank that police said went terribly wrong.

Jesse Rainey, 15, and seven male friends were spending the weekend at an unoccupied home that belonged to the grandmother of one of the boys, when a few of the teens decided to prank their friends by faking a home intrusion, Colbert County Sheriff Ronnie May told ABCNews.com.

“One of the young men cut the lights to the house, then a few of the other guys snuck back inside, wanting their friends to believe there was an intruder,” May said.

The teens were in the process of using flashlights to find the switch box, when Rainey jumped out of a closet.

His rattled friend immediately dropped a video game and fired a shot into Rainey’s head with a .38 caliber hand gun.

May called the shooting “accidental” and said after interviewing all of the boys and conferring with the district attorney’s office, no charges will be filed. Drugs and alcohol were also not a factor in the shooting

My question in all of this is "How the heck did a teenager get a .38 special revolver?"
Probably like this: Dad/Grandpa/Family Member teaches kid gun safety, shows him where the gun is. Kid feels his life is in danger, remembers the gun safety lesson, grabs the .38, and does what anyone would do when they feel threatened by a home intruder.

Common sense is almost non-existence in my generation.

I dunno about my friends on this one. The loss and the situation were real people with real lives. A tragedy occurred. Instead of I hope their families are alright or I hope the shooter doesn't end up with PTSD we have idiot, moron, stupid. I am just going to stop I have said enough.
