Authorities say an 11-year-old boy has been shot and killed while playing at his best friend's house in eastern Ohio.

Family members have identified the victim in Tuesday's shooting in Frazeysburg as Lucas Templin.

The Muskingum County Sheriff's Office says it appears the other boy pulled the trigger as the two were playing inside the house in the village about 15 miles north of Zanesville.

Investigators say the gun was a revolver and it was from the home where the shooting took place.

Templin's family tells WBNS-TV  that they believe it was an accident.

It's unclear if any charges will be filed.

The shooting remains under investigation.
