An 11-year-old boy died Wednesday, a day after being shot in the head by a classmate on a crowded elementary school playground, authorities said.

A 10-year-old boy upset over an argument the previous day at the Margaret Leary Elementary School fired a pistol three times Tuesday, police said. Jeremy Bullock, who was standing next to the intended target and about 10 feet from the shooter, died at St. James Community Hospital.

Teachers reportedly did not see the shooting, but one confiscated the gun after hearing shots fired.
