MACON, Ga. (AP) - Authorities in middle Georgia say a 13-year-old boy who was shot on Friday has died in a local hospital.

Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones says 13-year-old Marquez Blount died Saturday night at the Medical Center of Central Georgia. Authorities say the boy suffered a gunshot wound to his head Friday night.

Investigators say a 16-year-old boy was handling the gun when it discharged. The older teen is charged with possession of a firearm by a minor and possession of a firearm with an altered serial number.

The Associated Press typically doesn't identify juvenile crime suspects.
