A 10 year old boy died Thursday morning. Paramedics did all they could for the boy but it wasn’t enough. Now they’re investigating how it all happened.
WTSP reports a 5th grade student was being punished by his mother for a behavioral issue when she sent him to a room in their Clearwater apartment.
Police say there was a gun in the room, which the boy is believed to have used to shoot himself before 8:30 a.m.
Paramedics did everything they could for the boy, but he died at the scene, police said.
A spokesman with the Clearwater Police Department called it “a tragedy in all respects” and said the boy’s death remains under investigation.
