MARENGO, Ohio (AP) — Sheriff's deputies say a 10-year-old central Ohio boy died when he was accidentally shot while he and other children were playing with a shotgun.

The Morrow County Sheriff's Office said Dalton Wayne Taylor was shot in the chest in his family's garage at about 6 p.m. Thursday near Marengo, about 40 miles north of Columbus.

The sheriff's office said it is unclear who fired the gun and how, but Dalton apparently did not shoot himself.

The gun was left in the garage with other hunting gear. Deputies didn't know if it was loaded prior to the children finding it or if they loaded it.

The boy's father was home at the time but was in the back yard, the sheriff's office said.
