PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) - The teenage nephew of a Panama City police officer reportedly shot himself in the hand with the officer's gun.

Police say the 16-year-old boy was at the officer's home Monday while the officer was away. Investigators say the boy was playing with the gun when it fired, sending a bullet through his hand. No other injuries were reported.

Police are calling the shooting an accident, but investigators are still trying to determine if any laws were broken.
