TOGIAK, Alaska (AP) — A 6-year-old Alaska child has died after being accidentally shot by another child.
Investigators say the fatal shot was fired unintentionally by a 10-year-old child playing with an unsecured .22-caliber gun on Wednesday.
The Division of Alaska State Troopers says the child was shot in Togiak, a village of 900 people about 390 miles (630 kilometers) southwest of Anchorage.
Emergency responders attempted CPR on the child, who was pronounced dead at a local clinic.
The state medical examiner has requested an autopsy.
Names and genders of the children were not released.
