Northwest suburban police say it appears the death of an 11-year-old boy was an accident.

Allen Fernandez was found Saturday in a wooded area not far from his Hoffman Estates home. He had a puncture wound in his chest.

The medical examiner's office says it was not caused by a gunshot. A weekend autopsy was inconclusive.

Police say a search of the area turned up some evidence, but they would not elaborate.
