CULLMAN, Ala. (AP) - Police say an Alabama teenager is dead following an accidental shooting.

Cullman Police Chief Kenny Culpepper tells The Cullman Times that 16-year-old Jackson Lambert was found dead at his home Monday night.

The chief says the youth was talking to someone on social media at the time of this death, but they haven’t released additional details.

Culpepper calls the shooting a “horrible accident” that was caused by a mistake.

Coroner Jeremy Kilpatrick referred questions to police.

Lambert was a student at Cullman High School. Principal Kim Hall says grief counselors are on hand to assist students, teachers and staff following Lambert’s death.
