MILWAUKEE (AP) — A 3-year-old Milwaukee boy died after finding a gun and accidentally shooting himself.

Officers were called at 4:40 a.m. Friday to a home and found Akai W. Stilo with wounds. He died later at a hospital. A 28-year-old woman was arrested in connection with the shooting. No charges had been filed as of Saturday morning.
