LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - After being shot in the chest and dumped at Kosair Children's Hospital earlier this year, the death of Christopher Jones was originally thought to be an accident. Louisville Metro Police say they are now investigating  how Jones, who died from his injuries, was shot.

Friends of Jones told LMPD he had shot himself by accident. Now the Jefferson County Coroners' Office says that's not true.

"My son was very cautious with guns and he'd grown up around them all his life," said Bonnie Jones, Christopher Jones' mother. "So I knew he didn't do it to himself."
