Detroit police say the children were playing with a gun.

There were three children — all cousins — at the home at the time of the incident, said Detroit Deputy Chief Rodney Johnson. The third child was 5, he said.

Detroit Police Public Information Officer Adam Madera said the children found a “long gun” under a bed, pulled it out and began to play with it.

“At this time, although it’s early in the investigation, this appears to be a tragic accident,” Madera said.
