Walworth County Sheriff's deputies are continuing their investigation into a shooting involving two boys.

Authorities say one boy was shot in the head in the Town of Sharon Wednesday afternoon. He was taken to a Janesville hospital. Authorities say he was declared brain dead Thursday.

Investigators were questioning the other boy.

Walworth County Undersheriff Kurt Picknell says it's too early to determine if the shooting was accidental.
