Middle Ga. teen dies after being shot in head

By The Associated Press
MACON - 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 the younger teen was handling the gun when it discharged. The 16-year-old boy is charged with possession of a firearm by a minor and possession of a firearm with an altered serial number.

The Associated Press typically doesn't identify juvenile crime suspects.
