An investigation is continuing in a shooting that killed a Norene child Sunday night. The Wilson County Sheriff's Department reports that 3-year old Cheynne Alexis McKeehan accidentallyshot and killed herself with her stepfather's .380 caliber handgun.
Douglas Cronberger, the stepfather, told authorities that earlier Sunday evening he heard a prowler outside his Norene home, which is located on Cainsville Road right outside the Lebanon city limits.
Cronberger said he got his gun out to investigate, and when he returned he left the gun on the end table in the living room.
Cheyenne's mother, Tina Ann Cronberger, told authorities the little girl might have thought she was playing with a Nintendo Wii controller that may have resembled a gun.
Ashe said the stepfather said he was asleep at the time of the shooting, and the child's mother was in the room with the child.
