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.
