DETROIT (AP) - Detroit police say a 9-year-old boy who was home alone with children ages 13 and 10 has died after accidentally shooting himself.

The shooting happened about 4:30 p.m. Saturday on the city’s northwest side. WDIV says the other children were a 13-year-old girl and a 10-year-old boy.

Sgt. Michael Woody tells The Detroit News that the 9-year-old “found an unsecured weapon inside the home” and “was playing with it and shot himself.”

The victim’s name wasn’t immediately released.

Police say no adults were home at the time. An investigation is continuing.
