A 16-year-old girl died early Saturday after accidentally shooting herself, according to the Wichita Police Dept.

Police say emergency crews were called to a home near 13th and Grove, where they found the teenager dead in the basement. Investigators determined she had accidentally shot herself.

The Associated Press identified the girl as Nautica Whittiker. Police noted, though, that she does not live at the home.

Police say several people in their late teens were playing with a shotgun at the time. The gun belongs to someone who lives in the home.

At this time, police say they do not expect any charges to be filed.
