Doctors pronounced the teenager dead on Wednesday morning after he was found unconscious in a flat in central Loveland. Police officials said they believe he accidentally shot himself in the leg.

Loveland Police Department Deputy Chief Laurie Scott wrote in an email to the Reporter-Herald that the department received a call about an unconscious teenager in the area of ​​500 E. 23rd St. at 10:42 a.m. Wednesday.

Doctors arrived shortly after the call at the apartment the boy was in and pronounced the 16-year-old boy dead, Scott wrote.

She added that after a preliminary investigation, the department does not believe foul play was involved and it appears the victim suffered an accidental, self-inflicted gunshot wound to the leg.

She was unable to provide additional information about the incident as the investigation is still ongoing.

While an autopsy was performed Thursday morning, final results aren’t expected for four to six weeks, Scott wrote.
