Donald McGregor, 11, son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur McGregor, was killed this afternoon when a shotgun accidentally discharged while being aimed at him by James Nequette, 13.
Young Nequette could not tell how the gun went off. He said he was in an upstairs bedroom of his home at 520 Fifth Avenue and looked out to see the McGregor boy outside. He held the gun muzzle forward out of the window and said: "See the gun I found", just before it went off.
The place of the shooting is two doors east of the old Bee Hive building.
Police found the McGregor boy with a deep wound in his chest. Dr. C.E. Zellmer made an examination of the body and pronounced the boy dead.
Donald is survived by his parents and five sisters, Jean, Shirley, Eileen, Roberta and Marilyn. His father is employed by the Strong Coal company.
James Nequette is the son of Boyd Nequette, who is a baker employed at Gunkel's bakery.
The accident happened shortly before 3 p.m.
