The Jan. 28 death of an 11-year-old Yorkville boy — apparently of a self-inflicted gunshot wound — has prompted the Kendall County Sheriff's Department to begin its own investigation. The probe  began after it was revealed that the boy's mother is a sheriff's deputy, and the boy used her service weapon in the shooting, according to police. 

Since the story broke, community members reacted strongly to news of the boy's death.
