Stearns County prosecutors have filed charges against an Illinois man in the death of a 5-year old.

Roberto Williams, 35, of Chicago has been charged with two felony counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm and a gross misdemeanor count of negligently storing a firearm.

St. Cloud Police responded to a report of a child who died at St. Cloud Hospital after sustaining a gunshot wound at another location. Police say the shooting took place at a home in the 800 block of 10th Avenue North.

Authorities believe the shooting was accidental. A witness reported finding the child dead and alone in a bedroom with the 9mm handgun.

The handgun was reported stolen in St. Cloud on October 29th.

Williams has three prior convictions.  That case is set for trial in January.
