12-year-old fatally shoots himself in the head at Boy Scout camp in San Diego

An 12-year-old boy died on Monday after he reportedly shot himself in the head at a Boy Scouts camp on San Diego’s Fiesta Island.
According to KNSD, paramedics tried to revive the child after police responded to a 7:35 a.m. call about a suicide attempt. The child was declared dead at the scene.
A firearm was recovered from the scene, police said. But no additional information about the shooting was released.
Investigators were interviewing the child’s father, who was at the camp at the time of the shooting.
KNSD reported that the camp would remain open, and parents had not been told to pick up their children. The camp planned to make counselors available.
One counselor confirmed to parents that there were no firearm programs for students at the camp.
