GPD: Accidental shooting not ruled out in death of 12-year-old boy


The shooting death of a 12-year-old boy remains under investigation by the Griffin Police Department.

The boy was killed Saturday night in the 600 block of Hammock Drive.

GPD Public Information Office Lt. Daniel Jett on Sunday said investigators are not yet releasing the victim’s name.

“I cannot confirm that,” he said regarding the child’s name. “At this time we are awaiting forensic interviews on juvenile witnesses before we release any further information.”

The child’s death is being investigated as a homicide, but Jett said an accidental shooting has not been ruled out.

The GRIP will continue to follow this developing story and report additional information as it becomes available.
