How did Braydan Wrana die?

On Wednesday Night, Braydon Wrana accidently shot himself in the head while playing with a gun and passed away.

The official Face Book page of the Tuscarawas Valley Local School District shared the devastating news with a heart touching note.

They wrote,

“Our Tusky Valley family mourns the loss of Brayden Wrana, who passed away last night, January 5th, from injuries sustained in an accident. Brayden was an 8th grader at Tusky Valley Middle School and attended Tusky Valley throughout his schooling career. Brayden was kind-hearted, an avid baseball player, loved the outdoors, and was a good friend to all. He will be greatly missed by the students, staff, and the entire TV family. The district and community continue to keep the Wrana family in our thoughts and prayers.”

School counselors and clinical counselors from the Village Network were made available at the middle school, where the deceased, Brayden Wrana, was enrolled in the eighth grade, according to Derek Varansky, superintendent of Tuscarawas Valley Local Schools. He went to Tusky Valley for all four years of his education.

Staff members were briefed before school on Thursday, according to the superintendent.

According to the superintendent, the counseling team organized an assembly with eighth-grade students on Thursday morning to deliver the information and show support for the kids and staff.

Varansky informed parents via phone on Thursday morning that he has requested the local pastors to pray for the Wrana family, the school system, and the neighborhood.

He said,

“This type of loss is shocking and deep,”

“Please let our principals, counselors, or me know if you or your child(ren) need anything as we grieve.”


Sheriff Orvis L. Campbell said in a press release,

“Preliminary statements indicate a scenario where the 14-year-old victim was playing with the gun.”

He claimed that at 8:14 p.m. the boy’s 11-year-old sister contacted 911 to report that her brother had shot himself in the head.

Campbell said.,

“Deputies from the sheriff’s office arrived on scene and immediately took over CPR attempts,”

“CPR had initially been started by the 11-year-old caller with instructions from the 911 dispatcher and then were taken over by an adult family member when one arrived on scene.”

The teenager was transported to Cleveland Clinic Union Hospital in Dover by the Mineral City Fire Department. He was then flown to Akron Children’s Hospital by air ambulance, where doctors declared him to be dead.

The 14-year-old, the 11-year-old, and a 9-year-old sister were all at home when the incident occurred, according to Campbell. The individuals had already sought medical attention at Union Hospital after an accident earlier in the day on Wednesday. The other two siblings resided in Malvern, while the 14-year-old lived in Tabor Ridge.

Uniformed deputies took control of the gun after the incident and took pictures of the scene until Campbell and his team—Detective Lt. Adam Fisher and Detective Sgt. Ryan Hamilton—arrived to take over the investigation.

Campbell said,

“More investigation is under way as some family members were not able to be interviewed due to them leaving for the hospital in Dover and then in Akron.”

Fisher is in charge of the inquiry.


A ‘GoFundme’ page has been created to help the deceased family at this situation.

“I’m doing this fundraiser to help cover the upcoming expenses the family will be facing in the days ahead.

Brayden was one of the good ones that was taken to soon.

Thanks for your support!”

Tributes to Braydon Wrana

Many people expressed their profound sympathies to his family and expressed how much they loved him.

Shavonne McMillan commented,

“I haven’t had contact with Brayden for years now, but I had the honor of being his first baseball coach. He was the tiniest little dude I had that year. So little that with his jersey tucked in, you couldn’t see half the numbers. He struggled hard at the plate but was wonderful at taking instructions and being patient. We kept working at it and working at it. The day he finally connected, and got on the base; EVERYONE was so pumped for him. He and his grandparents were very kind and respectful. They thanked me several times for coaching and helping him with his skills. Such a beautiful child. This news made my eyes leak. RIP Brayden… keep playing the ball up there.”

Celina Kohler commented,

“So sad! I remember him signing up for baseball for the first time and those first years while we were still part of the youth league – he was such a sweet kid. Prayers for the family.”

Pamela Wilson commented,

“How tragic! I am so sorry for everyone’s loss. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends. May they find comfort in God’s embrace during this terrible time.”

Jane Doolin commented,

“Deepest Sympathy and Condolences to the Braden Wrana family and friends in their loss. May your memories help heal your heart. God be with you. Prayers to all.”

Brian Shuman wrote,

Brayden Wrana was tragically killed last night. James Totten, Rachel Wrana, Timothy Keister, And family at Countryside all have heavy hearts and our condolences are with you. Brayden was just 14 years old this is simply unfair.”

One of the worst things anyone can go through in life is losing a loved one. Any journey must have a destination at the end. The person’s time on earth has regrettably come to an end now that they have died.

We wish him eternal peace and send our thoughts and prayers to his loved ones, family, and friends. May he rest in peace.
