Family wants answers after teen accidentally shoots himself

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The family of a teen who shot himself is looking for answers. 

Family members say 19-year-old Justin Ruff accidentally shot and killed himself on Jan. 17. It happened at a home on 43rd and Broadway 

But Ruff's mother, Cynthia Ruff, says she wants more details about what happened because her son wasn't alone that day.

"I do feel like someone in that house knows -- he wasn't playing with that gun by himself.... I know somebody in that house knows what really happened," said Cynthia Ruff. 

Community activist Chris 2-X says Ruff was involved in his anti-violence effort. He would like to see more gun safety training for young people in West Louisville.
