CUBA CITY, Wis. (AP) -- Grant County sheriff's officials say the shooting death of an 8-year-old boy is still under investigation.

Authorities said Thursday three juvenile males gained access to a firearm last Friday and when they were handling it, the gun discharged and struck Gavin Klenzman in the head.

His published obituary says Gavin died at his home near Cuba City.

Gavin attended Fulton Elementary School in Dubuque, Iowa where he would have been in the third grade.
