A coroner's jury has been unable to determine whether a 3-year-old Joliet boy accidentally shot himself or was shot by someone else.Julius Rogers died last summer after he was shot in the head by a 45-caliber handgun on June 25, 2008.

Investigators were not able to get fingerprints from the gun, which had been reported stolen before the shooting.

The boy's mother was in the house at the time. She told police she had never seen the gun.

FBI agents determined the boy could have shot himself, but the jury in Will County was not so sure.

The cause of death remains undetermined.
