    To "neighbors": Neither of you need to point fingers as to what happened here. You don't know all the facts and are merely spreading rumors. That is not what is needed. If the details were any of your business, you would already know the facts. Your time would be better spent in prayer for both families instead of insinuations. Leave them alone!

    Parents all over need to learn that youngsters must be supervised when handling guns. The parents should check and re-check the gun to see if it is safe. My heart goes out to both families.

    It is a tragic thing for these boys to have to go through. I know them both. As for the parents that were not supervising, but knew what they were doing, I have to wonder are they responsible? This is not something I take to blame someone. Wake up and watch your children when firearms are involved. Godbless both families. In my opinion the word accident is being assumed and used too loosely.

    Thank you Choco mom! Both of our families are going through a tough time right now. BOTH of my brothers are suffering hard with this accident, and we all thank everyone for all of the prayers and concerns. Just keep praying for a speedy and full recovery.

    Both these young men are hurting..one physical and the other emotional..this was an accident, these two are good friends and would never harm one another. Keep your faith in God, He has this in his hands. God bless both families and you are in our prayers.

    To amazed, you said it. It seems if the news didn't say anything aboutv the Edgecombe county ares, they wouldn't have much to report.

    When we assume, cherry, we really do make an assu me. These two young men are both white, highly intelligent, well behaved members of our community. It was a tragic mistake/accident. You need to worry about Edgecombe county and fix your problems.
