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. The Beloit Daily News reports 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.
