Troopers: Argument leads to boy's death [View all]

A 9-year-old boy in the village of Pilot Station was shot and killed Friday afternoon during an argument with another 9-year-old boy, Alaska State Troopers reported on Sunday.

The shot came from a .177 caliber pellet rifle, troopers said. The other boy fired the air rifle while the two were having an argument, and the round hit the child in the chest, troopers said.

The injured boy was taken to the Pilot Station health clinic for medical attention, but succumbed to his injuries, troopers said.

Troopers are continuing to investigate the shooting. They haven't yet released names of either boy.
