FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – Police in Fort Worth are investigating the shooting death of an 11-year-old boy. The victim was discovered on Tuesday afternoon in the hallway of a home located in the 3700 block of Garden Springs Drive. But there are still very few details about his death.

When authorities arrived on the scene, just before 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, they spoke with the victim’s aunt and sister. The child was rushed to Cook Children’s Medical Center, but was pronounced dead on Wednesday morning.

According to a statement released by the Fort Worth Police Department, the young child appeared to have died from “a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head.” Detectives have not released information about how this injury may have happened – if it was suicide or an accidental shooting.

The official cause of death has not been released. An autopsy is scheduled for Thursday.

The deceased child was a sixth grade student at Mary Harris Intermediate School, part of the Crowley Independent School District. A letter discussing the tragedy was sent home with students, said district spokesman Anthony Kirchner. A crisis response team is also on-hand at the campus to assist students.

Kirchner said that he was not aware of any bullying against the child.
