A stray bullet killed teen in Utah

The victim was simply driving by the nearest target range. When his father looked back to the backseats, he saw that the body of his son lay on laps of his daughter with the blood everywhere.

The group of the shooter was standing near, with targets on the trees. One of the bullets missed its target and struck right in the head of 14-year-old boy who was sitting in the car with his mom, dad and sister.

His name was Zackary Kempke, and he was from North Ogden. That day he sat with his family in the car, on the back seat. They were crossing Monte Cristo trails when he was shot. It happened on Sunday.

His uncle Cory Hopkins shared the information with the press.

According to the official information from authorities, this shooting happened at 3 p.m. approximately, in the area popular by its camping and hunting places. It is the northern part of Utah.

Hopkins told reporters that the family wanted to take pictures and see how autumn changes color of leaves. When they were still driving, they recently heard the noise of an explosion from the back seat of the car.

The family began to look for any cell phone service in the closest area to call 911, and found a group of shooters in several hundred yards from them.

Sheriff Dale Stacey said that the group of hunters claims that they did not know about the road near the territory, as it was covered under the trees and thick bushes.

Investigation continues.
