CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- A Hamilton County grand jury chose not to indict a grandfather after his 2-year-old grandson accidentally shot himself with the man's pistol.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports  the Hamilton County District Attorney's Office had pursued a charge of criminally negligent homicide against Stan Nowell.

The grand jury last week issued a no true bill, meaning they did not believe there was enough evidence against Nowell to take the case to trial.

Two-year-old Brennan Nowell shot himself on Dec. 20 after his grandfather left a .40-caliber semiautomatic pistol on a chair.

Stan Nowell is a pastor and a missionary who started Forgotten Child Ministries, an organization that helps street children in Honduras.
