Gun Accident Brings Death to Sparta Lad

Twelve-year old Terry Luttrull was the victim of a gun accident at his home east of Sparta on Hwy 14 Tuesday afternoon. Holding the heavy calibre gun which accidentally discharged was Terry’s twin brother, Gary.  They are sons of Mr. and Mrs. Don Luttrull. Christian County Coroner described the accident by saying the twins’ older brother, Keith, 17, a senior at Sparta High School, had been shooting a .22 calibre rifle “out behind the house” and that he gave the gun to Gary to return to the gun rack about 3:45 p.m. Keith left to go to town, and Gary put the gun away but took a .30 calibre lever action rifle from the rack. Coroner Harris said the boy told him the chamber was empty, but he levered a shell from the magazine into the barrel. This cocked the hammer, and as Gary was holding the gun at his side, the hammer fell and the gun fired. The shot passed through an open door and struck Terry, standing in another room, in the lower part of his chest, killing him instantly. Harris said no inquest is planned. Besides his parents and brothers, Terry is survived by another brother, Denny, of Corning, Calif.; his paternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Luttrull, of Elkhead and his maternal grandparetnss, Mr. and Mrs. Bill Coffer of Sparta. Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday inb the Harris Funeral Home Chapel at Ozark, with Rev. James Applegate, assisted by Rev. Clifford Day, officiating.
