DETROIT (AP) - A 9-year-old boy has been shot to death on Detroit’s west side.

Police say the shooting occurred about 12:30 p.m. Monday on Barton Street.

The boy was handling a shotgun. Police say he suffered a gunshot wound to the body.

Police Chief James Craig told reporters that the boy’s father and at least one other child were in the home at the time of the shooting. The father was later arrested on an unrelated charge.

Police were not sure why the boy was not at school Monday.

This story has been corrected to show that police now say the boy was 9 years old, not 6.
