TRAGIC HARRISON CO. SHOOTING - Harrison County Sheriff Sheriff Albert Marano said William Owens, 11, of Jarvisville, was lying in bed when he received a single gunshot wound to his chest Sunday night, killing him.

Prior to the shooting, Owens' grandmother, Tina Owens, 57, of Jarvisville and Owens' father heard what they thought to be intruders tampering with their property.

Tina Owens went outside to investigate, taking along a .40 caliber pistol and fired multiple shots to scare away the intruders.

Sheriff Marano says one of the shots went astray, traveling through a house wall and hitting William Owens in the chest, killing him.

The Tina Owens' home and William Owens' homes are about 200 ft. apart, said Marano.

The woman hasn't been charged, although the investigation is ongoing.
