A neighbor said he was cleaning his gun about 40 to 50 yards away from the victim, when the weapon went off by mistake, according to the sheriff’s office.

“This appears to be a tragic accident with the most unfortunate of outcomes,” said Sgt. Edwin Cayenne with the JSO Homicide Unit.

The neighbor is cooperating with investigators, who are working with the state attorney’s office to determine whether he will be charged, WJXT reported.
