Attorney says BB pierced boy's heart, causing death

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - An attorney says an 11-year-old boy shot
with a BB gun died because the BB pierced his heart.
Attorney John DeCamillis is representing the mother and
stepfather of Dallas Barnes, who was shot Sunday by his 16-year-old
uncle. No criminal charges were expected to be filed.
DeCamillis told The Courier-Journal that the BB penetrated
between the younger boy's ribs and entered his right ventricle and
artery.
Police say the boys thought they were playing with empty air
guns when the older boy fired at the younger one.
DeCamillis called it "an unbelievably tragic event" for the
family.
