"Antoine had it in his possession at the time it went off, striking his friend Devon Anderson and fatally injured Anderson."
Anderson was pronounced dead at the scene. Antoine turned himself in to police shortly after the shooting. Authorities say Antoine insists there was no altercation between him and Anderson and the shooting was an accident. Coppola says this is truly an unfortunate incident.
"Any time a life is lost it's tragic, especially when it's not intentional as this seems it was not."
He says detectives are still working to determine how the teens came in possession of the shotgun.
