MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A funeral service will be held Thursday in Madison for the 11-year-old who died of a gunshot wound suffered in Walworth County last week.

Eric Gutierrez was shot in the head in the Town of Sharon last Wednesday afternoon. He was taken to a Janesville hospital where he was later declared brain dead. A family spokeswoman Susan Garcia says at least five people received the boy's donated organs.

Sheriff's deputies interviewed a 13-year-old boy with Gutierrez when he was shot, but aren't providing any other details.

The funeral Thursday morning is at St. Joseph's Church in Madison.
