26-year-old Joy Logan of Bay Minette, Alabama was visiting her aunt in Mobile. They went to visit a family member in the hospital and her aunt told Joy that because it was late, she should spend the night in Mobile instead of driving home. Joy took her aunt's key and went to the house. Meanwhile, Joy's cousin, 18-year-old Daniel Johnson was home alone, not knowing his cousin was coming over. He heard a noise, thought it was a burglar, went and got his gun and fatally shot his cousin.
The Mobile County Sheriff's Office said there was "no evidence the shooting was anything other than an accidental death." As is standard procedure, the case will be presented to a grand jury.
