Police: Teen killed in ‘game’ involving bow-and-arrow

CHAPMANVILLE, W.Va. (AP) – West Virginia State Police say a 15-year-old boy was killed while playing a game of “dodging arrows.”

Trooper Michael Baylous told news media that Caleb Fairchild was playing the game Saturday evening in Chapmanville when he was struck in the head by an arrow.

Baylous said Fairchild was taken to Logan Regional Medical Center, and then to Charleston Area Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Chapmanville Middle School, where the teen attended classes, had grief counselors on hand Monday to help students cope with the loss.
