ALOHA, Ore. (AP) — A 3-year-old western Oregon boy has died following a shooting, police said Saturday.

The Washington County sheriff’s office in a statement said the family of James Kenneth Lindquester called for help Friday evening after reporting the child found a handgun in a bedroom end table and shot himself in the head.

Emergency responders arrived and took over life-saving efforts, but the child was pronounced dead at an area hospital just before midnight on Friday.

Police are investigating.
