Three unintentional shootings in Kentucky just days apart, two dead

A 15-year-old boy and some of his friends were looking at a gun in a home in Mortons Gap, Kentucky. One of the friends unintentionally discharged the gun shooting the boy in the face. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
18-year-old Sarah N. was sitting on a front porch with friends in Wheatcroft, Kentucky. They were "looking at a firearm" when the gun went off, hitting Sarah in the neck. The friends told police they didn't realize the gun was loaded. Sarah was pronounced dead at the scene.
Two juveniles in Daviess County, Kentucky were firing a shotgun at targets. A stray shot crossed the road and struck a man in a church parking lot. The victim was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The Sheriff's office is investigating to determine what if any charges apply.
Ohh shoot.
