CINCINNATI -- Authorities said an 8-year-old U.S. boy has been shot in the chest and killed while playing with a gun that he and his two brothers thought was a pellet gun.

Cincinnati Police Lt. Don Luck told the Cincinnati Enquirer that the three boys were visiting an uncle when one pulled the trigger of a handgun and hit Sammy Lorenzo in the chest Saturday.

The boy was taken to Cincinnati Children's Hospital and rushed into surgery, but later died.

Luck said no charges are expected against the children and that it's too early to tell whether charges will be filed against any adults. (AP)
