DENVER — A 3-year-old boy who was injured in an apparent self-inflicted shooting on April 17 has died, the Denver Police Department (DPD) said on Monday.
Officers responded to the shooting around 5:20 p.m. April 17 in the 1700 block of South Pecos Street, DPD said. That's near Ruby Hill Park, just south of West Mexico Avenue.
The child was taken by private vehicle to a hospital, DPD said.
The Denver Medical Examiner's Office identified the child as Manuel Lopez IV.
"At this stage of the investigation, it appears the shooting was accidental and self-inflicted," DPD said in a tweet at the time.
Lopez's parents were taken into custody a few days after the shooting, DPD said.
The Denver District Attorney's Office decided against filing charges against the parents.
