The gun’s 30-year-old owner, Joshua Greenhill, was one of the adults in the house; he was arrested and jailed. On Tuesday, he was charged with careless discharge of a firearm  causing injury or death, a high misdemeanor that carries a maximum penalty of two years in prison. The Monroe County Prosecutor’s Office had at first been considering a charge of involuntary manslaughter , which carries a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison.

You know how sometimes you get lost and you just don’t have anywhere to turn around except by using someone’s driveway? Well, don’t ever let that happen to you in the backwoods of Tennessee.
Oscar Scott and his family of seven  decided to go out for a nice Sunday visit to Bays Mountain Park in northeastern Tennessee. When it was time to go home, they thought it’d be nice to take the scenic route. After enjoying some scenery, they came across Bays Mountain Road and took it, curious to see if it would take them back to the park. After going a ways down the road, they noticed that the road became very narrow and turned in to what Scott described as “an old log road.” Figuring it was best to turn around, he put the car in reverse, and chaos ensued.

A Texas girl died on Tuesday night after being accidentally shot with an AK-47 assault-style rifle while her stepbrother was “making the weapon safe by pulling the trigger,” authorities said.
In a press release on Wednesday, Johnson County Sheriff Bob Alford explained that deputies responded to a call Tuesday night about 8 p.m to find 13-year-old Emilee Bates shot in the stomach.
According to KXAS , Lt. Tim Jones told how the girl’s 19-year-old step-brother, Austin McCord, accidentally fired the weapon while cleaning it.
The sheriff’s office said that McCord had ejected two “dummy” rounds from the AK-47, but he had forgotten about other live rounds in the magazine.
A 10-year-old boy was killed in San Diego after an accidental shooting  Tuesday.
According to police, the child and a 9-year-old girl were handling a loaded gun  in the garage of a housing complex when the shooting took place, local news outlets report. Though the boy, identified by ABC 10News as Eric Klyaz , was rushed to a local hospital, he succumbed to his injuries later that day.
As the Associated Press notes, the girl’s 14-year-old sibling was babysitting  at the time, and no adults were present. After the shot rang out shortly after 4 p.m., adults nearby ran to the garage and discovered Klyaz had been shot in the chest . Police found a 9 mm semi-automatic at the scene.
“I heard a loud pop and said that didn’t sound good,” a neighbor told Fox 5 News San Diego . ”I found a boy curled up in the fetal position with a red dot on his back it looked like a gun shot.”
