CORSICANA (KYTX) - At approximately 8:46 p.m. on Wednesday, May 8, 2013 the Corsicana Police Department's Communications Center received a 911 call from the thirty-five year old father of a two year old boy.

 The investigation surrounding the circumstances of the shooting is continuing. However, all information and physical evidence indicates the shooting was accidental when the child found a handgun inside a bedroom and then discharged it, striking himself in the head. The child's father was reported to have been in another room of the house at the time of the shooting. No one else was home at the time of the shooting.

 Child Protective Services and the Navarro County District Attorney's Office have been informed of the investigation. When the investigation is concluded it will be referred to the District Attorney's Office to review for consideration of criminal charges.
