The Barnes County Sheriff's office is investigating the shooting death of an 12 year old boy at a home in Sanborn, North Dakota.

Chief Deputy Don Fiebiger says authorities were called to the residence about 10 p.m. Sunday. A shotgun was recovered at the scene. He says investigators have not determined if the shooting was accidental. An autopsy is being performed at UND.

The boy attended Barnes County North Public Schoool. Grief counselors are at the school Monday.
