Mobile Police say the District Attorney's Office has not found evidence to support criminal charges after a one-year-old boy was accidentally shot and killed on Monday. Because of this, no criminal charges will be filed.

Authorities said the child was taken to a local hospital after being accidentally shot on Domain Street in Mobile near the intersection of Three Notch Road and Schillinger Road.

The child, mother, and a two-year-old child were at the home at the time of the shooting.

Authorities said the mother walked to a detached building out back to tell her mother-in-law she was about to leave when the two-year-old emerged and told his mother that his ears were ringing from the gunshot fired.

The weapon, believed to be a 9 mm, is believed to belong to the mother-in-law, according to our sister station WPMI.
