ONE KILLED IN SHOOTING INCIDENT
A 14-year-old juvenile is in the juvenile diversion center in Dothan after he allegedly shot and killed a 12-year-old boy Thursday night.
Geneva County Sheriff Tony Helms said the boys were alone at 3507 County Hwy. 41 while their caregivers were at a church play. The 14-year-old took a semi-automatic 12 gauge shotgun from a closet and the shotgun accidentally discharged, killing Jade Alton Jones of Florala instantly, Helms said.
The alleged shooter was sent to the diversion center Thursday and petition was signed Tuesday charging him with manslaughter, Helms said. The victim’s body was sent to the Department of Forensics in Montgomery for autopsy.
