A three year old boy was killed after finding a gun and accidentally shooting himself.
Newton County Sheriff Joedy Pennington told WLBT in Jackson that the boy was alone in a car with his older sister when the three-year-old found a gun in the glove compartment. The gun discharged, shooting the boy in the chest.
The parents had stepped away from the car to invite a group to a revival, Pennington said.
No charges were filed in the incident.
