DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) --- Des Moines Police say the Iowa man who owned the gun used to shoot a 13-year-old boy over the weekend has been found dead.
The Des Moines Register reports 65-year-old Dennis Yohe was found with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound on Sunday night.
One day earlier, 13-year-old Alec Osborn was shot in the shoulder as he and two other boys were playing with one of Yohe's guns. Osborn was treated at a hospital and released.
Police seized eight guns from Yohe's home after the incident, but they didn't take the black powder revolver he used to kill himself.
Des Moines police Sgt. Jason Halifax says investigators had planned to pursue charges against Yohe. It's not yet clear whether prosecutors will charge the boy who shot Osborn.
