BARTHOLOMEW COUNTY— There’s a renewed push in Bartholomew County for gun safety from police and parents.

The push comes after an 18-year-old in Hope, Indiana told police he accidentally shot his friend thinking he was using an airsoft gun last week.

The friend ultimately died from his injuries.

Now a group of parents is working to educate people about gun safety.

“It’s preventable, it’s tragic, it’s life-shattering that people have lost their child, or (that) a child has shot somebody accidentally and then they have to grow up in the rest of their lives knowing that they have killed a loved one,” said Julie Wagner.
