    Greenville police say a child was accidentally shot and killed inside a home Friday morning.

    According to police, they received a 911 call at about 10:45 a.m. that someone had been shot inside a residence.

    The first officer arrived at the scene only a minute later and located the injured 12-year-old child, identified as Keshawn Carter Davis. The child was transported to Hunt Regional Medical Center in Greenville where he was later pronounced dead.

    Police said the child was shot once and that the shooting appears to be accidental, but that how the children came into possession of the gun and what led to the shooting are under investigation.

    "By all accounts, there were no adults present when the shooting occurred. Five children, ages 4, 9 and three 12-year olds, were the only people in the home at the time of the shooting," said Daniel Busken, Greenville Chief of Police.

    None of the other four children were injured.
