ATLANTA -- Officials are reporting that a teen is dead after accidentally shooting himself in southeast Atlanta late Sunday.
Details are still limited but officials said the incident happened at a home in the 1800 block of Charleston Avenue SE.
Authorities are still looking into the ownership of the gun and the circumstances that lead up to the accidental shooting.
Authorities have not yet released the name of the victim.
If preliminary reports are true, the shooting would be the second accidental shooting reported in metro Atlanta in just one weekend.
On Saturday, police in Clayton County responded to a seen in Jonesboro where a 12-year-old was accidentally shot by another child.
That child was taken to the hospital for surgery and was previously said to be in serious condition.
