A 17-year-old Cassopolis man is in Elkhart General Hospital in stable condition after being shot by his cousin Wednesday night. The Cass County Sheriff's Department says the shooting was accidental and happened when 20-year-old Jeremy Faye was putting the weapon down after believing it was unloaded. Faye told officers he accidentally pulled the trigger, shooting Christopher Burhnam in the lower abdomen area. The shooting happened just before 9 p.m. at a home in the 66-thousand block of Tharp lake Road in Calvin Township. The accidental shooting remains under investigation, and it's not clear if Faye will be charged.

Of course it's not clear if there will be charges?  That'll take a lengthy investigation to see if there was any negligence.
