Man accidentally shoots himself while cleaning rifle

BOYCEVILLE, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  A 19-year-old western Wisconsin man died after he accidentally shot himself while cleaning a rifle. It happened Wednesday night at the victim's home at Boyceville in Dunn County. Sheriff's deputies said there's no evidence that the shooting was intentional, and foul play was not involved.

The victim's name was not immediately released.

Dunn County deputies said the shooting would have been avoided had the victim followed basic firearm safety rules -- like treating every gun as if it's loaded, keeping fingers off the trigger until it's time to shoot, and pointing the muzzle in a safe direction.
