    Once again, no charges. They need to start charging the registered owners when known.

    Article was posted afternoon of Mar 13, apparently the day of the shooting.
    May be a bit early to conclude charges won't be filed. Still could happen.

    I think the decision has already been made.

    The sheriff's office investigated the shooting and determined it was accidental.

    Thanks for quoting the article.

    In (mis?)reading it, I did not think a finding of "accidental" would preclude crim charges.

    Again, thank you.

    Not clear who shot the gun. Has anyone seen updates?
