SEDRO WOOLLEY, Wash. – Autopsy results reveal a four-year-old Sedro Woolley boy may have died from a self-inflicted gun shot wound.

Sedro Woolley Police Chief Doug Wood says investigators initially thought the boy may have shot himself, but they were later led to believe that 25-year-old Trevor Braymiller had a hand in the boy’s death.

Braymiller turned himself in after being on the run for more than 24 hours following the boy’s death Sunday.

The autopsy results leave questions as to why Braymiller ran from authorities and why he took the gun that shot the boy.

Wood says he is unsure if and what charges may be filed against Braymiller.
