FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - A 2-year-old boy in central North Carolina who shot himself with a firearm has died, police said.
Fayetteville police, which are still investigating the shooting reported Wednesday, said in a news release they were notified of the boy’s death on Saturday. He had been taken to UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill.
Police went Wednesday morning to a residence on the city’s north side to respond to a shooting report. At least three other people, including two adults, were inside the home at the time, police Lt. Gary Womble told reporters. Police on Saturday said the yet-identified child died from his injuries from “a self-inflicted gunshot wound.”
