What are the details? What kind of gun? Where's the autopsy report? Are any charges going to be filed? Why did this child have access to a gun?

No charges. Ruled 8 year old accidentally shot himself in head with 410 rifle. His father, who was home schooling him, called it in as a suicide. His mother was at work at the hospital. Continue to pray for his 4 year old sister.

This smells of politics. Somebody has to be charged with the death of this child even if no jail time is involved. But to bring no charges is suspicious just like the sheriff being quoted as saying the shooting was "suspicious". I understand this Andy Brown is pretty friendly with Michial Stewart.

I guess this just set precedent that adults in Jackson Parish won't be held responsible if they leave guns for children to have access to. They better be glad they don't live in Mike Stone country.[Lincoln Parish}
