A Danville man died Saturday after he apparently shot himself accidentally at a Garrard County residence.
Kentucky State Police say Brandon Grubbs, 18, of 301 Hill 'n' Dale Apt. 25 was found with a single gunshot wound at 694 New Haven Road.
Garrard County Coroner Daryll Hodge said Grubbs died of a "self-inflicted, accidental gunshot wound." Hodge said his deputy coroner, Mike Dickson, was at the scene along with KSP and was told by witnesses at the scene that the young man was playing with the gun when it went off.
Dickson said the shooting happened around 2:30 p.m. He declined to say the how the fatal gunshot was inflicted or to what part of the body. He did say the state medical examiner's office in Frankfort was performing an autopsy. "My part is still under investigation," he said.
