3 year old Colorado child died of gunshot wound to the head

A 3 year old child in Colorado died of gunshot injuries to his head. There seems to be some confusion as to who fired the legally owned gun. From an article:
When police and paramedics arrived they found a semiautomatic handgun lying near his head. Police say the gun appeared to have been fired. The boy was rushed to the hospital with severe skull trauma. He was pronounced dead at 11:15 a.m.
Investigators are still trying to sort out exactly what happened. They say it's unclear who fired the gun.
The boy and his mother were the only ones in the house at the time of the incident.
Though it is not known yet whether the child shot himself, more information will come for this incident.  We will publish further information as it is available. But we will say anyway:

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