Authorities: Ga. toddler dies in BB gun shooting

ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta police say a father has been charged with felony murder in the BB gun shooting death of his 18-month-old son.
   
Officer Kim Y. Jones says the boy's father, 23-year-old Jesse L. Sellers, was arrested Friday and also charged with cruelty to children.
