EL CAMPO - An 18-year-old El Campo teen died Monday night after he accidentally shot himself in the head.

Kolby Beal was holding a revolver that discharged at a home in the 1100 block of North Washington Street, said El Campo Police Department Assistant Chief Gary Williamson.

The shooting is under investigation, but Williamson said foul play is not suspected.
