A teenager took his own life after accidentally shooting and killing his friend in new year's eve.
on Monday afternoon, a group of friends had gathered at a “makeshift shed” in Lawrenceville, one of them had allegedly pulled a handgun and accidentally shot one of the boys in the group.
the group of the boys scattered while the teen who committed the act stayed on the scene and called 911.
Responding officers found one teen dead inside the shed and then "heard a single gunshot while attempting to locate the involved parties from the initial 911 call."
"Officers located a male with what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound a short distance from the makeshift shed," a statement from Gwinnett police said.
the teens were between 16 and 18 years old, their identities have not been released yet.
