JASPER COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

The person arrested in connection with the shooting death of a Jasper County teen will not be facing any charges, according to Jasper County investigator Captain Robert Morris. 

Morris said the teen's death has been ruled accidental, but the case will still be heard by the grand jury. 

The teenager was taken into custody Monday, but has since been released. 

Authorities were called to a mobile home on County Road 237 in the Moss Community after a 911 call came in around 8:45 p.m. Sunday. 

Morris said the incident happened during a party. Morris said there was no altercation at the party, and about eight people were in attendance.

Authorities aren't releasing the names of the victim, or the teenager that was questioned.

The teen killed was a student at Stringer Attendance Center.

Regardless, expectations are always high for coach Chris Robinson’s teams – JCJC is a combined 105-12 the last two seasons.
