CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -

A 3-year-old boy has died after apparently shooting himself with a gun he found outside a Detroit-area apartment complex.

Clinton Township police Capt. Capt. Richard Maierle tells The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens that the boy picked the gun from the ground.

His parents heard the gunshot and rushed the boy to a hospital Tuesday afternoon.

Maierle says investigators are looking for the gun which now is missing. It was not clear who owned the gun.

Clinton Township is in Macomb County, northeast of Detroit.
