CLINTON, Md. (AP) — Prince George’s County police have charged a man after a 6-year-old boy accidentally fatally shot himself after finding a loaded gun in a children’s backpack.

Raymond A. Brown, 20, was arrested after Monday’s accident. He is charged with reckless endangerment and was held on $45,000 bond.
