A Tulsa teen is dead, the victim of a hunting accident over fall break.

14-year-old Coty Evans died after a shotgun his friend was carrying accidentally went off in Cherokee County. Coty was hit in the upper shoulder.

Officials say the boy was holding a 20 gauge shotgun while walking through high weeds and brush. The boy was using the butt of the gun to move weeds when the gun accidentally discharged.
