JASPER COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - A grand jury ruled not to indict a person arrested in connection to the shooting death of a Jasper Co. teen that happened in March.
Brandon Miller was arrested for the shooting death of 15-year-old Cole Buchanan on March 7.
The district attorney presented the case last week.
The following is a statement from the district attorney:
No charges were filed against Miller because the teen's death was ruled accidental, according to Jasper Co. Investigator Robert Morris. But according to Morris, the case would still be heard by a grand jury.
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, March 6.
Morris said the incident happened during a party. Morris said there was no altercation at the party, and about eight people were in attendance.
Buchanan was a student at Stringer Attendance Center.
