No charges will be filed against a 16-year-old accused of shooting his 12-year-old brother.

The district attorney completed his review of the case and determined it was accidental.

The shooting happened earlier this week on 10th Avenue South in Birmingham. Police say the teen was trying to uncock a gun when it went off. A bullet struck the child in the neck. The child remains in stable condition at Children's of Alabama.
