SALISBURY, Md.- A Hebron man whose 4-year-old son accidentally shot himself has been found not guilty of manslaughter.

While acquitted Thursday on the manslaughter charge, 30-year-old Jamal Woolford Sr. was found guilty by a Wicomico County Circuit Court jury of reckless endangerment, firearms access by minors and several drug offenses.

Woolford's son, Jamal Woolford Jr., fatally shot himself and injured his mother on March 5 of last year with a gun his father kept in the bedroom of their home on Old Railroad Road in Hebron

Woolford testified during trial that he bought the gun to protect his family. He said he mostly kept the weapon under the bed.

Woolford faces a maximum of 45 years in prison when he is sentenced at a future date.
