BROOKHAVEN, Miss. (AP) - Authorities say a Lincoln County teen is dead after a shooting at a party.

Rushing tells local news outlets another 17-year-old has been charged with manslaughter.

He says homeowners were out of town at the time of the party.

The sheriff says the teens were handling a pistol when it discharged.

He says the case will be presented to a grand jury.
