RAVENNA, Ohio (AP) – Authorities outside Cleveland say they’re investigating the fatal shooting of a 17-year-old boy reported in a 911 call as an accident.
Ravenna police in northeast Ohio said on Facebook the department received a call around 12:45 a.m. Saturday from someone saying the teen had accidentally shot himself in the chest.
The teen, who has not been identified, was pronounced dead at a hospital.
Police say the only witness remaining at the apartment building where the shooting occurred was questioned and that others might have fled before police and paramedics arrived.
A handgun was found at the scene.
