The district attorney says there will be no charges filed against the father of an 11-year-old girl who was killed late last month in Carteret County.
District Attorney Scott Thomas says the death of Kassidy Wynne on June 28th was a "tragic accident" involving the accidental discharge of a firearm.
Deputies say Michael Wynne told them he was in his spare bedroom clearing a 20 gauge shotgun when the weapon fired. Wynne told 911 that he had accidentally shot his daughter.
Deputies say Wynne's older daughter was also in the room at the time of the shooting. The two had just arrived the day before to spend the summer with their father.
Thomas says he has spoken with the girl's mother and she agrees with his decision.
