A 16-year-old boy died Saturday after accidentally shooting himself outside his home in Springfield.

Austin McBride apparently was cleaning his .22-caliber handgun in preparation for a gun show when it went off, shooting him in the stomach, according to a Washington County sheriff's office report.

McBride was flown to Kosair Children's Hospital in Louisville and was declared dead by coroner Joanne Farmer about 4 p.m., according to the report.

McBride's mother had been in the shower at the time of the accident, and his stepfather was not home at the time, according to the report.
