HARRISBURG, Ill. - The 9-year-old boy from Harrisburg, Illinois who was accidentally shot in Texas last Friday was laid to rest Wednesday.

The service for Daniel Wiley started at 11 a.m. at Reed Funeral Chapel in Harrisburg.

Wiley was in Texas visiting his grandparents when he was shot. His 13-year-old brother was showing him his grandfather's gun when it fired.

The grandfather, 56-year-old Danny Eugene Bowman, has been charged in the case. He's facing charges of Abandonment and Endangering a Child for leaving a gun out when he went to the store.
