Maine State Police and the Maine Wardens Service are now saying that 15-year old Joshua Sawyer of Pittsfield was shot by a 14-year old boy. The fatality was initially reported as a hunting accident but now authorities are calling it a shooting death.

Police are saying there are a lot of unanswered questions and they hope today they can get most if not all of them answered. An autopsy is being performed today that should help answer some of those questions.
