ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A 16-year-old central Floridaboy who was accidentally shot in the head by a 6-year-old child has died.

The Orlando Sentinel reports Anthony Lane Jr. was removed from life support Monday night. His grandmother told the newspaper the teen died a short time later at Orlando Regional Medical Center.

Police say the teen was at a relative’s home in Eatonville playing video games Sunday night when he was injured. Detectives say the boy picked up a small handgun from the floor because he thought it was a toy.

Authorities say it is unclear who loaded the weapon or why it was easily accessible to the child.

No charges have been filed.
