— A 10-year-old boy who was accidentally shot and killed by his brother was laid to rest Monday.

Halifax County investigators said Nicholas Evans was playing with a shotgun last week when he shot his brother, Damian.

Evans' 8-year-old cousin was also critically injured.

The district attorney has not decided whether to file charges against Nicholas' parents for failing to secure the gun.
