Orleans County teen dead of apparent gunshot wound


SHELBY, NY – A 15-year-old teenager died at home of a gunshot wound on Friday afternoon, apparently resulting from the careless handling of a loaded firearm.

Orleans County Sheriff's deputies say that Jacob A. Stahl and a teenage friend were in an upstairs bedroom at Stahl's home on Salt Works Road when the accident happened.

The incident was reported at about 5:30 p.m. Friday. Deputies say the victim's father was also at home when the incident occurred, but he was in another part of the house.

We're told deputies have no reason to suspect foul play, and the other teen who was with the boy when he was killed is cooperating with investigators.

Stahl was a 10th grade student at Medina High School. Deputies contacted Medina Central School District officials so they can make preparations for grief counseling when students return to school on Monday.
