A 16-year-old boy was found dead Wednesday afternoon at his home in Oakley from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot to the head, according to Summit County Sheriff's Office Capt. Justin Martinez.
At about 4:30 p.m., the boy's mother found him deceased in his bedroom and called 911. Deputies from the Sheriff's Office and officers from the Kamas City Police Department responded.
An investigation on the incident is underway, Martinez said.
"There are no signs of foul play," Martinez said. "The case is being treated as a suicide at this time."
