OAKLEY, Calif. (AP) - Police now say an 11-year-old Contra Costa County boy who died of a gunshot wound intentionally shot himself.

Police found the boy after being called to his Oakley home a little after 7 p.m. on Wednesday. Investigators initially believed the boy shot himself accidentally.

But they said on Thursday after an autopsy by the Contra Costa County Coroner’s Office that the wound was intentionally inflicted.
