MACON, Ga. (AP) - A 13-year-old boy was shot to death outside his Macon home in what police are calling an accidental shooting.
However, police have arrested a 15-year-old, who was not identified, and charged him with involuntary manslaughter.
Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones said Edonis Howard was killed by the shot that struck him in the face.
Initial reports indicated it might have been gang related, but police Lieutenant Carl Fletcher said that proved not to be true.
