CHICAGO (WLS) -- Charges have been filed in the deadly shooting of an 11-year-old boy in Chicago.

A 19-year-old uncle of the boy is charged in connection to the shooting.

Police say the gun that the boy shot himself with by accident belonged to Eurel Wilford, who is due in court Saturday.

Relatives said Antwone Price, 11, found a gun outside Wednesday night and brought it into his house in the 7400-block of South St. Lawrence Avenue. They said the gun went off as the boy handed it to Wilford.

Price was wounded in the stomach and died at the hospital a short time later, police said.
