APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - Appleton police say a man has died from injuries suffered from an accidental gunshot.

Police were called around 7:45 p.m. Sunday to a home in the 900 block of W. Winnebago Street. 

The 911 call said that a 55-year-old man had been shot by an acquaintance that was looking over a handgun when it went off. Police say the victim, identified as Joseph M. Pastorelli Sr., was hit by a single round.

Pastorelli was rushed to the hospital, where he later died. An autopsy was scheduled for Monday.

Police interviewed several people inside the home at the time. Investigators believe it happened while several guns were being cleaned after they had recently been fired at a shooting range.

No one else was injured.
