LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- An Indiana teenager who was shot in the head by his brother has died.

Emergency workers found the 12-year-old not responsive late Monday night at the family's rural home several miles north of North Vernon.  He was taken by helicopter to an Indianapolis hospital where he later died.

The Jennings County sheriff's department says family members had been target shooting earlier in the day and the 16-year-old brother wrongly assumed the rifle he had was unloaded.
