Authorities in Jackson County and KBI have completed the investigation into a shooting that left one teen dead at the hands of another teen.
Prayer surrounds the family as they cope with the death of 14 year old Michael Anderson.
Jackson County Sheriffs deputies arrived Friday night in Denison, Kansas to find 14 year old Michael Anderson shot by his 13 year old friend during a sleepover. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
His grandmother, Norma Hoagland, says, "We know he's in heaven right now with the family that went before him."
Kimberly Hoagland says, "It's hard to believe these two grew up in diapers together. A 13 yr old boy and my nephew and now he's shot dead...best friends."
The Jackson County sheriffs office and KBI have just completed the investigation and have charged 13 year old Matt Skidmore with involuntary manslaughter.
There will be a public viewing Friday for Michael Anderson at Lakeview Faith Chapel in Holton. If you'd like to make a donation for the funeral...call 785 364-6615.
Donations can also be made to The Farmers State Bank in Holton.
