COTTAGEVILLE, W. VA (AP) – A West Virginia man has been charged with the gunshot death of his 11-year-old niece, police said.

Andrew Scott Jackson, 36, of Cottageville, has been charged with gross neglect of a child, resulting in death after the shooting on Friday evening, media reports reported.

According to a criminal complaint, Jackson told assistants to the Jackson County Sheriff that he was cleaning his mother’s pistol when it fired, hitting him in the hand and his niece in the chest. Jackson was not legally authorized to possess a firearm because of a previous drug crime conviction.

Jackson’s mother told members of the House that she had previously warned him of handling firearms with children in the room. The woman suffered powder burns to her face following another accidental discharge of a gun owned by Jackson about a month ago, according to the complaint.

Jackson was held on $ 150,000 bail in the South Central Regional Prison. Prison records did not indicate whether he had a lawyer.
