12 Year Old Dies From Single Gunshot Wound

A 12-year old from Calhoun died over the weekend following what appears to be an accidental shooting in Rome.

The incident occurred Sunday at a residence on Rosemont Drive.

According to Floyd County Coroner Gene Proctor, the boy sustained a single gunshot wound to the chest and was pronounced dead Sunday at 6:02 p.m. in the emergency room at Floyd Medical Center.

The incident remains under investigation, but once again, it appears to be a tragic accident.
