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.
