Teen Dies After Accidentally Shooting Self

Associated Press - December 19, 2016 3:09 pm

A robbery suspect is now in custody after a standoff in Wichita that ended after hours of negotiations.

Police in Wichita, Kansas, say a 16-year-old girl died after accidentally shooting herself.

Wichita police Lt. Jason Stephens says 16-year-old Nautica Whittker shot herself unintentionally early Saturday when she and other teenagers were playing with a shotgun in the basement of a home she was visiting.

Whittker died at the scene.

Stephens says the shotgun belonged to a resident of the home.
