11 yr old shot to death

local boy was shot by a 12 yr old neighbor Saturday afternoon. I knew the kid. News stories are all over the place. Some say he was shot in the house by accidental shotgun blast, other news stories that he was shot outside with a rifle, no accident. I have heard a great many complaints for months about these two kids shooting and target precticing, unsupervised by adults in an exurban neighborhood. Some neighbors even kept their kids indoors when the target shooting was going on because they knew there wasn't a proper area or backstop for target shooting. The real shame, is that because of some ignorant adults who didn't properly teach or supervise their kids, one boy is dead and other folks will blame guns and want more gun control.
I am going to the funeral service. What do you say to the parents to convey sympathy for their loss? (Especially, when I'm a bit miffed with their lack of supervision of their own kid)
