According to WUSA, the tragic scene unfolded at about 3:25 p.m. when cops got a call from a family member who said the unidentified boy took a gunshot wound to the head

The boy had apparently gone into an unoccupied pickup truck at that address and found the gun.

The boy was taken to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Authorities on scene said the wound seemed to be self-inflicted and accidental. The sad incident is still under investigation.

As of late Wednesday night, police had not released the identity of the victim.

If you do choose to own a gun, please remember these things are not toys! Make sure you are the only one that can access it or this can happen. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
