We have a sad update to a story we first reported Tuesday about a 12-year-old boy who died in a hunting accident. Thursday, the Attala County coroner confirmed the victim was from Jackson County.

According to a GoFundMe page, Garret Morgan is the boy who was killed in the accident. His family is now seeking donations to help cover his funeral expenses. They've already raised nearly $5,000.

Few details have been released about Garret's death, but investigators say the accident involved a tree stand.

Garrett's family says he loved playing football, fishing, and the outdoors. His funeral will be this Saturday in Vancleave.
