JONESBORO — Jonesboro police say a teenager has died in what appears to be an accidental shooting outside of a fast food restaurant.

Sgt. Doug Formon says the shooting was reported Wednesday night at a Chick-fil-A restaurant in Jonesboro. Formon tells Jonesboro television station KAIT that the shooting happened inside a truck that was in the restaurant's parking lot.

Formon says three people were in the truck at the time of the shooting. Police say the victim, who was male, was taken to a hospital where he later died.

Police have not yet released the teen's name but say the shooting appears to be an accident. Formon says police are not seeking any suspects in the case.

2 word sentences; that is the extent of GooBGone's wisdom. Of course he believes that those strict gun laws in Chicago are working too

A kid died here, not everything is an opportunity for a political argument. Thoughts are with the kids and their families.

Whether its a gun accident, an auto accident, or work place accident, any loss of life is tragic. My thoughts and prayers go out to the parents and relatives of this young man.

No shooting is an accident. Someone had to put the bullet in the chamber. This is just anther example of Arkansas's out of control gun culture. No one is for new gun laws until a bullet comes in their direction or they loose a love one. Every time you put one in the chamber you never know where it will go. When some gets shoot the first words you hear from the shooter are "I thought it was not loaded", "I assumed the chamber was empty". It's Thursday, do you know where all of your guns are right now?
