Boy Scout suicideSAN DIEGO, CA — A 12-year-old boy at a Boy Scout camp on Fiesta Island used a handgun to shoot and kill himself Monday morning, police said.

The boy was part of a group of around 20 who arrived at the camp from Las Vegas and were scheduled to stay at the camp until July 5, said Lt. Mike Hastings. Included with the group was a scout master and the boy’s father.

At around 7:36 a.m. Monday morning, police were called to the camp after the boy was found inside his tent suffering from a single gunshot wound. Initially reported that he’d been shot in the head, it is now being reported he’d shot himself once in the chest.

The boy’s identity has not been officially release and police have not said how the boy got his hands on the gun that was found inside the boy’s tent.

The camp allows Scouts to earn a variety of merit badges, sail and build leadership skills. Firearms are not allowed at the camp and the program offers no activities in which a firearm would be used.

The Boy Scouts said grief counselors were sent to work with the children and released the following statement:

“This is an extremely sad day for our entire scouting family. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and all those who experienced this tragedy. Our top priority is providing support to our community and for those in the grieving process.”

Speaking of dead Scouts… have you read The Troop yet? It’s the feel-good book of the year, hand down.
