BRENTWOOD, N.H. (AP) — Authorities say the police chief in Danville, N.H., has been charged with the negligent storage of firearms after a 15-year-old boy shot himself in the house.

Rockingham County Attorney Jim Reams said Chief Wade Parsons allegedly failed to secure his loaded service weapon when leaving his house to conduct errands while knowing that a juvenile was there.

Reams said the weapon was used by the boy to shoot himself while no one else was home on March 11. He was identified as Jacob Carver, a student at Timberland Regional High School.

Negligent storage of a firearm is a violation carrying a fine of up to $1,000.
