The Halifax County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death of a 4-year-old Friday afternoon.
In a statement Chief Deputy Scott Hall said deputies responded around noon to a residence on Delta Drive after a call that a child sustained “what appears as an accidental self-inflicted gunshot wound.”
Investigators learned the child died as a result of the injuries.
Hall this morning declined to elaborate beyond what was said in the press statement.
The case remains under investigation.
