WHITE MILLS —People remembered a young boy who died from a gunshot wound over the weekend.
Folks gathered to remember Hunter Pedersen.
The ten year-old boy died at his grandmother’s house in Pike County on Saturday after a gun his uncle allegedly was showing him went off.
The uncle, Chad Olm, is locked up in Pike County, charged with homicide.
Hunter’s family talked Tuesday night to Newswatch 16 about gun safety.
“I don’t want to ever see another family go through something like this. We are all heartbroken. You cant get a kid back. You can’t get a kid back and he was such a good little boy,” said Hunter’s grandmother, Linda Honickel.
According to State Police, Chad Olm said he never checked the gun to make sure there wasn’t a bullet in the chamber.
