Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine said on Friday that no charges will be filed against a 17-year-old boy who accidentally shot and killed his father earlier this week in Northwest Omaha. 

Kleine told KMTV on the decision and added that the shooting was a "terrible accident."

On Tuesday, Majestic and his 17-year-old son were in their apartment when the boy noticed one of his father's several guns was loaded.

Kleine says the revolver fired when the boy tried to unload it.

The bullet struck Majestic in the head, fatally wounding him. It was his 44th birthday.
