BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Jefferson County authorities say a 12-year-old boy has died after being accidentally shot by his big brother.
The coroner says Mikhese Hood died Sunday at Children’s of Alabama.
The boy’s 16-year-old brother was reportedly trying to uncock a gun when it went off last Thursday at the home they share in Birmingham. The younger boy was struck in the neck.
Police say no charges will be filed.
