Child Shooting Ruled Accidental

Montgomery, Al. (WSFA) -- Montgomery police tell WSFA 12 News a shooting last Thursday involving two children has been ruled accidental.

Investigators believe the ten year old victim's cousin, who was also ten years old, accidentally shot and killed her.

Relatives tells WSFA 12 News the two cousins were close and played together at the home  on Lynwood Drive all the time.

Alonza Parrish was just across the street when the shooting happened. He says he heard the shot that killed the little girl. "I heard the gunshot.  After that all the kids started screaming," said Parrish.

Parrish says he saw the children out in the neighborhood earlier in the day.

Relatives tell us the girl would have been a fifth grader at Wares Ferry Elementary this fall.

They declined to go on camera but ask everyone to pray for their family.
