HARRISON, Tenn. (AP) - A Tennessee toddler is dead after accidently shooting himself.

Janice Atkinson, with the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office, told WRCB-TV (http://bit.ly/Zr9ff4) that 2-year-old Brennan Nowell died late Thursday from his injuries.

Authorities have said the child was shot in the stomach with a firearm that belonged to his grandfather.

Neighbors told the station that the child found the handgun and was playing with it when he accidentally shot himself.
