A 13-year-old who was shot Sunday in Yacolt has died, according to the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies responded to a call in the 32900 block of Northeast Thompson Road just before 1:40 p.m. Sunday.

When they arrived they found that the boy had been shot with a hunting rifle. Deputies noted that the shooting appeared accidental.
