THIBODAUX, La. (AP) — A Louisiana sheriff’s office says a 20-year-old man was shot in the head and died while he and a 15-year-old boy were playing with a gun that they thought was unloaded.

The Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office said Friday in a news release that Courtney Poche Jr. of Thibodaux died shortly after 11 p.m. Thursday at a house in Thibodaux.

The boy was arrested on a negligent homicide charge. His name was not released because he is a juvenile.
