CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Clarksville police say a 3-year-old boy has died after shooting himself with a gun in the face.

The Leaf-Chronicle reports Clarksville police spokesman Lt. Steve Warren said the child was visiting with family from Fort Riley, Kansas, when he was shot Friday at a residence.

He says the child fired one shot from a .40-caliber handgun registered to the owner of the home.

Warren says the child was pronounced dead at a Clarksville hospital.

Warren said no charges were immediately filed and the investigation is continuing.
