The Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office is continuing its investigation into the shooting death of a ten year old female on Pentacre Road near Quick, WV, yesterday evening (December 22, 2013). When all evidence, statements, and reports are completed the sum will be given to the Office of the Prosecuting Attorney of Kanawha County for review. That office will determine whether or not to pursue criminal charges in the matter. The shooting is still viewed as an accidental event.
Among the several questions posed to the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office today was one on the nature of the relationship between the involved nine year old boy and ten year old girl. They were friends and were not relatives. They were visiting the residence of a family member of the nine year old male.
No additional information on the incident will be released this date. When more information is available another press release will be distributed.
