CHICAGO (AP) - Police say an 11-year-old boy was accidentally shot and killed by a relative at a home in Chicago.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified the boy as Antwone J. Price.

Police say the boy was shot in the abdomen Wednesday night in the Park Manor neighborhood. He was pronounced dead at Comer Children’s Hospital.

One person was in custody, but no charges had been announced Thursday.

Police are releasing few details, and relatives tell the Chicago Tribune they aren’t sure what happened.

The boy’s grandmother, Michele Watson, told the newspaper that all they know is he was shot in the stomach and bled to death despite the efforts of paramedics.
