DETROIT (AP) - A Detroit man has been charged with second-degree murder after police say his 9-year-old son found a shotgun at home and fatally shot himself.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says 45-year-old Christopher Duran Head was arraigned Thursday.

Head also is charged with involuntary manslaughter, child abuse and weapons offenses. Court records don’t list a lawyer for him.

Daylen Makhai Head was fatally shot in the head Monday afternoon on the city’s west side. Police have said he was handling a loaded shotgun that wasn’t secured.

Christopher Head and another child also were at the home.

Christopher Head faces a Nov. 19 probable cause hearing and a Nov. 25 preliminary examination.
