Franklin Township — Police say a 3-year-old boy has died after accidentally shooting himself at a home in southern Michigan.
State police say Jonathan Kaufman was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head Sunday afternoon in Lenawee County’s Franklin Township, about 55 miles southwest of Detroit.
Police say the boy apparently found the loaded .40-caliber handgun in a closet while his father and older brother were outside.
The death is under investigation. A report will be sent to the county prosecutor’s office for review, which typically happens in such cases.
