Very tragic accident...

SMICKSBURG — A member of northern Indiana County’s Amish community died Thursday evening in an accidental shooting.
Indiana County Coroner Jerry Overman Jr. identified the victim as Allen Troyer, 21, of 381 Whitaker Road, Smicksburg.
Overman said Troyer’s 12-year-old cousin was holding a black powder revolver when Troyer grabbed the gun by the barrel and it discharged into Troyer’s chest, killing him instantly.
No argument or foul play was discovered during an investigation by the coroner, and he ruled the manner of death as accidental.
State police from Punxsutawney are also investigating the incident.
Overman said the shooting happened at 9:38 p.m. Thursday at 382 Whitaker Road.
