MARSHALL, Mo. - A shooting that killed a popular Marshall High School student while he was hunting was accidental, Saline County Sheriff Wally George said Tuesday.

Kendall L. Jones, 18, died Nov. 12 while hunting in rural Nelson. George said ballistics tests have identified the gun that killed Jones, but he declined to release the name of the gun owner. He said no charges will be filed.

The youth who owned the gun has retained an attorney and George said police are working with that attorney to obtain a statement needed to complete the investigation and close the case.

Jones, a senior at Marshall High, was part of the football and wrestling programs.

Rumors had circulated around Marshall that the shooting might not have been accidental, but George had said there was "absolutely no evidence" of foul play.
