Kendallville man dies weeks after being shot by a tossed gun

KENDALLVILLE, Ind. (AP) — A Kendallville man has died weeks after being shot in the stomach by gun that was tossed onto a bed.

An obituary for 20-year-old Jerremmy Hall says he died Tuesday at a Fort Wayne hospital where he was taken following the July 6 shooting. Police say an adult was handling a gun in a Kendallville apartment when the weapon was tossed onto a bed and it discharged, shooting Hall in the abdomen.

The findings from an autopsy planned for Friday will be forwarded to Noble County prosecutors. No charges have been filed, but a preliminary investigation suggested the shooting was accidental.
