Teen Killed in Apparent Accidental Shooting

PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - A Florida Panhandle teenager has died following what authorities believe was an accidental shooting.

The Escambia County Sheriff's Office reports that 17-year-old Ryan Edward Flaherty was shot in the head Sunday night. He later died at a hospital.

Flaherty had been at a Pensacola home with several friends when one of them shot him with a handgun.

Authorities haven't identified the teen who shot Flaherty.

Deputies were still examining evidence, and prosecutor's will ultimately determine what charges will be filed.
