Deputies in Wilson County say parents will not face any charges after their seven-year-old was shot and killed by his younger brother.
It happened last month near Fremont on Jaycross Road. Killed was Alejandro Mejia after deputies say his four-year-old brother shot him with an air rifle.
The family said the child got the gun for Christmas and the boy was out shooting cans in the yard when the accident happened. Both parents and three other children were home at the time.
The air rifle involved in this case was loaded with BBs, according to the Medical Examiner.
The Wilson County Sheriff's Office says the child's death was accidental and their investigation is now closed.
