RUSK, Texas (AP) - Officials say a 2-year-old East Texas boy has died after shooting himself in the face.

The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office said in a news release that the boy's great-great-grandmother called 911 on Wednesday afternoon.

The Tyler Morning Telegraph reports that details, including how the toddler found the gun, are still under investigation.

Officials say the boy, who would have turned 3 in July, shot himself with a 9mm pistol.

He was taken by helicopter to a Tyler hospital.
