Posted: Updated:

CLAY COUNTY, Texas_Continuing coverage on the accidental shooting death of a young boy at his grandfather's home in Clay County Texas over the weekend. 

Police say the victim, 9-year-old Daniel Wiley, was visiting his grandfather for the summer from Pennsylvania.  According to a police affidavit, the grandfather, 56-year-old Danny Eugene Bowman, left the home to buy beer Friday.

Court records say his 13-year-old grandson got the shotgun and brought it outside to his brother, Daniel Wiley. The shotgun fell and when the 13-year-old went to pick it up, one round shot Wiley in the face and killed him.

Bowman was arrested and charged with child endangerment and has since posted bond.
