9-year-old Mississippi boy dies from gunshot

A coroner says a 9-year-old boy was found shot to death Tuesday at his home in Marshall County and authorities are trying to determine if he shot himself and if the shooting was accidental.

Marshall County Coroner James Richard Anderson tells The Associated Press the boy died from a single gunshot wound to the chest.

A message left at the sheriff’s office was not immediately returned.

Anderson says the victim is Adbarious Finley and that the boy’s father and 11-year-old brother were home at the time.

The body was sent to Jackson for an autopsy. Anderson says the gun was recovered at the scene.
