MACON, Georgia (AP) – The grandmother of a four-year-old boy who was shot dead in her home was arrested in connection with the case.

Kawana Liggins, 50, of Macon, is charged with manipulating evidence, WMAZ-TV reported. It was not known if Liggins had an attorney who could speak on her behalf.

The Bibb County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call about a child shot at Pendleton Homes, Macon at around 8:30 p.m., the sheriff’s office said in a press release. Macon-Bibb Coroner Leon Jones identified the child as Kameron Ross and said he was visiting his grandmother. Ross was taken to the medical center, Atrium Health Navicent, where he died shortly before 9:30 p.m.

The sheriff’s office said Ross found a gun in the apartment and accidentally shot himself. According to investigators, it turned out that the gun belonged to a 14- and 16-year-old who lived in the house. The two teenagers have since been released into the care of another family.

The case is still under investigation and other charges are pending.
