(CBS Seattle) — A convicted felon who fled from a crime scene in which a four-year-old boy had been shot and killed has surrendered to police, according to KIRO 7.

Investigators have also confirmed that the fatal shot was self-inflicted, not from another person.

KIRO 7 reports that initially the coroner said it was “impossible” for the boy to have shot himself. Because medical examiner’s office said the gunshot wound on the boy was not self-inflicted, officers began investigating the death as a homicide and sought Trevor Braymiller for more questioning.

However, results from an autopsy Monday proved the initial information to be wrong and that the boy did die from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
