Dead Boy Scout was son of Las Vegas attorneys

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The 12-year-old boy who died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound at a Boy Scout camo on Fiesta Island was the son of two prominent Las Vegas attorneys.

William Shook died in a tent Monday morning of a gunshot to the upper torso.

Union-Tribune San Diego is reporting he was the son of Julie Shook, a former deputy district attorney for Clark County, and John Shook, a founding partner in a law firm. John Shook was at the camp with William when he died.

Investigators believe William brought the gun -- which was unregistered -- with him.
