Police charged Alante Jones with two counts of manslaughter and illegal possession of a firearm.

He added, “The result is far from tragic, and regardless of what exactly happened, the little girl has changed forever .. This painful experience undoubtedly will affect this girl for the rest of her life.”
Caswell stressed, “Whether you own a gun or not, you need to talk to your children about gun safety … Tell your children, regardless of their age or youth, (If you see a gun, never touch it.
