CORSICANA, Texas — A toddler died late Wednesday after accidentally shooting himself.

Corsicana Police Chief Randy Bratton said the boy's father called 911 just before 9 p.m. and told dispatchers his son shot himself at the family's home on North 30th Street.

Kinsler Allen Davis, 2, was taken to Navarro Regional Hospital and then flown by helicopter to Children's Medical Center in Dallas, where doctors pronounced him dead.

The victim's name was not released.

A preliminary investigation shows the boy found the handgun inside a bedroom and fired it. The bullet hit him in the head, Chief Bratton said. The boy's father was in another room of the house when the shooting happened.

Corsicana is 51 miles southeast of Dallas.
