SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Police say a 10-year-old boy has died after accidentally shooting himself in the chest while playing in a San Diego garage.
Homicide Lt. Jorge Duran said the shooting at the condominium complex was reported Tuesday afternoon and the boy died at Rady Children's Hospital shortly after.
Duran says the boy was playing in the garage of a neighbor's condo with a 9-year-old girl who lives there. Her 14-year-old brother was babysitting. No adults were home.
Police say they found a 9 mm semi-automatic handgun at the scene. They were interviewing the girl's parents, who may face charges.
The boy's parents rushed to the garage, which was used like a clubhouse for neighborhood kids, and held him until police and paramedics arrived.
