10-year-old killed in accidental shooting

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - The shooting death of a 10-year-old

Jackson boy has been ruled accidental by a county coroner.

Hinds County Coroner Sharon Grisham-Stewart says a preliminary

examination of the boy's body shows the wound is consistent with an

accidental shooting. She said the bullet hit the boy in the arm and

struck an artery.

Jackson police say the boy's family members told investigators

that he may have been playing with a gun they kept in the house for

protection when the shooting occurred Friday night.

Police have not filed any charges in the case.
