A two-year-old boy accidentally shot himself in the head on Saturday and died, police said.
The toddler's parents were away from home during filming in Fresno, California, but two adults were in the house, said Rob Beck from the Fresno Police Department ABC30. The Fresno Bee reports that the adults were the fiancé of the father and a friend.
When the officials arrived on Saturday afternoon, the toddler was still breathing, but despite "intensive life-saving efforts," the doctors were unable to rescue him, police said in Central Valley TV stations.
It was not immediately clear who owned the gun and why the child had it. The child was in a bedroom when he shot himself with a pistol, reports ABC30.
"If you have firearms in the house, they must be locked and out of reach of children," said Beck ABC30.
California law requires that weapons have an approved locking device. If a child is injured or dies from a weapon that is not stored safely, the gun owner could be held responsible for an offense or crime.
