Police say a 41-year-old man working for a moving company accidentally fatally shot himself after finding a loaded gun while helping clean out a house.

The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens reports the man found the gun Saturday afternoon in a closet of the home in Macomb County's Clinton Township.

Police say the Harper Woods man was handing the gun to another man when it went off. Police and prosecutors ruled the shooting an accident.

The name of the man who died wasn't immediately released.
