A boy has died after shooting himself in the head Monday at a Boy Scout camp in San Diego, officials confirmed.

San Diego police were called to a suicide attempt at the Fiesta Island Youth Camp and Youth Aquatic Center in Mission Bay at 7:35 a.m., Lt. Mike Hastings said.  Officers were able to get the gun away from the 12-year-old scout but by then it was too late, Hastings said.

Paramedics tried to revive the child, but he was pronounced dead at the campsite, according to a spokesperson for San Diego Fire Rescue.

Investigators have blocked off the camp entrance and are interviewing scouts and leaders, including the child’s father who was present at the camp.

What a horrible thing for this child to feel he had to take his own life. May he rest in peace as well send our prayers out to his family.
