No charges filed in 3-year-old's accidental shooting in Williston


WILLISTON, N.D. - The State’s Attorney in Williston has chosen not to file criminal charges in the accidental shooting of a 3-year-old boy last December.

Sheriff’s deputies found the boy with what appeared to be an accidental, self-inflicted gunshot wound in rural Williston on Dec. 5.

Paramedics rushed the boy to a hospital in Fargo where he was in serious but stable condition.

The Sheriff’s office says the boy has since returned home to recover and is doing well.
