Lawrenceville, GA (CBS46) A tragic turn of events has left two families mourning the loss of teens who were killed in an accidental shooting turned suicide in Gwinnett County.

Gwinnett County Police say the shooting occurred in the 1800 block of Riverlanding Circle. Two juveniles were found at the scene.

Four teens were gathered in a cramped makeshift shed where 15-year-old Devin Hodges was showing off a handgun when he accidentally shot 17-year-old Chad Carelss.

The other three teens fled the scene, with one calling 911.

Responding officers were attempting to locate the teens when they noticed Hodges running between homes where he then took his own life with the handgun. Careless' lifeless body was found in the shed.

The investigation continues.
