A tragic accident over the weekend claimed the life of a 15-year-old high school freshman at East Beauregard High.  Cameron Carter's life was taken by the accidental discharge of a shotgun this past Saturday. No foul play was suspected in his death.

This week, friends and family will celebrate his life.

KPLC reports that Carter's memorial is set for 6 p.m. Friday at the East Beauregard High football field, where blue balloons will be released. The color was Cameron's favorite.

Southwest Lousiana also responded generously in helping the family with funeral expenses.  KPLC reports that in 24 hours, the community donated over $3,000 via GoFundMe.
