Alabama teen shot in prank taken off life support
<![CDATA[TUSCUMBIA, Ala. (AP) -- A teenager has died following a prank played by a group of teenage boys in northern Alabama. Authorities say 15-year-old Jesse Rainey was taken off life support Friday at a Birmingham hospital. Colbert County Sheriff Ronnie May said previously that the shooting happened early Saturday morning at a rural home in Tuscumbia where eight teenagers had gone for the weekend. No adults were present. May said a group went outside to play a prank. They flipped off an electrical breaker to turn out the lights. Rainey then hid in a closet as part of the prank. When one boy opened that closet door, Rainey jumped out to scare him. The boy fired a gun, shooting Rainey in the head. Authorities are investigating the case as an accidental shooting.

My prayers are with all the boys who were present that night. And their families.
