Police: Michigan City boy fatally shot during gun game

LAPORTE (AP) — A northern Indiana man faces reckless homicide charges for the shooting death of his girlfriend's 3-year-old son.

LaPorte County authorities filed the charges Monday against 24-year-old Zachariah Grisham, saying he shot Lance Wilson on Sunday while they were playing a gun game in their Michigan City home.

Sheriff's Sgt. Andrew Hynek tells WNDU-TV and WSBT-TV that Grisham was pointing a handgun at Lance while the boy was pointing a toy gun back. Hynek says investigators don't believe the shooting was intentional, but that Grisham must be held responsible.

Grisham also faces charges of child neglect resulting in death. A judge ordered Grisham jailed under $100,000 bond. Court records don't yet list an attorney for him.
