OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) — A 9-year-old girl was shot to death in the back yard of her home at Oregon City.

Police say she was hit in the head Sunday afternoon by a bullet fired from inside the home by her mother’s boyfriend who was cleaning a handgun when it accidentally fired.

The girl was pronounced dead shortly after she was airlifted to Oregon Health & Science University Hospital in Portland.

Police say the man is cooperating with investigators.
