No charges filed in shooting death of teen

Monday, April 22nd, 2013

CHADBOURN,NC (WWAY) — No charges will be filed in the shooting death of Jasmine Thar. The 16-year-old was shot and killed in the front yard of a Chadbourn home on December 23, 2012.

James Blackwell, who lived across the street, says his 700 Remington Rifle went off without pulling the trigger.

The investigation determined that the death was the product of an accidental discharge resulting in an unintended consequence.

According to District Attorney Jon David, the fact that a shooting occurred does not constitute criminal negligence. There is no evidence to suggest that Blackwell shot Thar intentionally. The bullet traveled through a shut window with the blinds in a closed position.

The investigation also found that there is no evidence that Blackwell’s actions were motivated by racial hatred or animosity between the parties. Instead, multiple witnesses reported observing Blackwell screaming, crying, and showing extreme remorse directly after the shooting.

The investigation concluded that Blackwell cannot be criminally charged in connection with this accidental shooting.
