Charges have been filed in connection with an accidental shooting on Doyle Road last week.
According to Floyd County Jail records, 25-year-old Jeffrey Lee Akins is charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, use of a firearm by a convicted felon, furnishing a pistol to a person under the age of 18, and second-degree cruelty to children (criminal negligence).
The arrest warrant states that Akins was in possession of a Taurus PT 740 Slim 40-caliber semi-automatic. He reportedly gave the gun to a 13-year old and a 7-year old, who accidentally shot themselves on July 15.
Akins had removed the magazine from the firearm but failed to unchamber the round.
A second firearm also was found inside the house, according to the report.
Early reports say both children were transported to the hospital.
