A child neglect case moves forward against a father.

A grand jury indicted Nicholas Pierce on felony child neglect charges today.

Detectives say his 4-year-old son Evan was accidentally shot in the stomach at a home in the Salem Lakes neighborhood in February.

Friends told NewsChannel 3 Evan had at least 13 surgeries after the shooting.
