15-year old boy found dead in southern Oregon from self-inflicted gunshot

A 15-year old boy was found dead in Sutherlin, Oregon, in an apparent suicide using a gun.

From an article:

According to the Sutherlin Police Department, officers responded to a home in the 500 block of E. Sixth Ave., after a juvenile was reported missing. 
Police say they discovered a 15-year-old male deceased, who had suffered a single gunshot wound. 
The Douglas County Medical Examiner responded to assist at the scene. 
Sutherlin police are continuing the investigation.

It doesn't say where the boy got the gun and ammo.

Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
