A grand jury has indicted a man in the shooting of his young son.

Nicholas Pierce's four-year-old son was shot in the hip by what Virginia Beach Police describe as a large-caliber gun.

Investigators still have not said who pulled the trigger, but have ruled the shooting as accidental.

Pierce's son is still in the hospital. Pierce is charged with felony child neglect.
