OWOSSO, Mich. (AP) — Police say a 3-year-old Michigan boy died after accidentally shooting himself Friday.

The death in Owosso, 35 miles northeast of Lansing, was the second in recent days involving children with guns. In Detroit, an 18-month-old boy who got access to a gun shot his 5-year-old cousin.

Owosso police say the 3-year-old was taken to a local hospital but didn't survive. No other details were released.
