SAN DIEGO – Police say an 11-year-old boy at a Boy Scout camp in San Diego has died from a gunshot wound.

Officer Matt Tortorella told The Associated Press that at 7:36 a.m. Monday police received a call that a boy had been holding the gun when he was shot in the head at the camp on Fiesta Island.
