The Essex County Prosecutor's Office says the shooting

Baraka also became the first official to identify the boy killed in the accident as Josiah Coleman.

It was at this party that a child managed to get their hands on a gun and accidentally shoot the 10-year-old to death. But they declined to release the names of either child or provide further details about the shooting, citing the ongoing investigation. Investigators say Josiah Coleman was killed when another juvenile in the home mistakenly fired the weapon.

Mayor Ras Baraka, in response to a 10-year-old boy being shot by another boy inside his grandfather's home, is calling for stricter gun control.

Representatives of the Essex County Prosecutor's Office were not immediately available to comment.
