Posted: Updated:

PRATTS, Va. (AP)- A Madison County man says his 12-year-old son was playing with a friend when he was killed in an accidental shooting.

Police say the victim died following an accidental shooting involving two juveniles. The shooting occurred Saturday in woods near the boy's house in Pratts.

Dan Dixon says that his son, Dax, had been staying with a relative over the weekend. Dixon says he was at work and didn't know his son had been returned to the neighborhood and was at the friend's house.

The Madison County Sheriff's Office is investigating the shooting.

The boy was a student at William Wetsel Middle School.

Madison County schools superintendent Matt Eberhardt says counselors will be at the school on Monday.
