ST. MATTHEWS, S.C.  – Authorities say a 12-year-old South Carolina boy killed his 11-year-old nephew by shooting him in the head during an argument in their rural home.

Calhoun County Coroner Donnie Porth says Langley Rudisell IV was pronounced dead at a Columbia hospital about 10:15 p.m. Sunday, more than an hour after his 12-year-old uncle pointed a shot gun at him and fired a single bullet.

An autopsy Monday determined Rudisell died from the gunshot wound to his brain.

Sheriff Thomas Summers said he expects to decide Tuesday whether to file any charges. He said he does not foresee any charges against the victims’ grandparents, who had custody of Rudisell and were home at the time.

Summers said the two were being raised together.

St. Matthews is about 35 miles south of Columbia. More on
