UPDATE/WALLA WALLA, WA. - The Walla Walla Police Department is continuing to investigate a fatal shooting on Friday.

Officers say Ramiro Lopez Jr., 20, died from a single gunshot wound to the head. Lopez was with three other people when the shooting happened. They are being questioned and are cooperating with investigators.

Police believe the shooting may have been accidental. They are not looking for any suspects.

"It's appearing that it was accidental however the investigation is continuing, but there's still some more evidence that needs to be gathered that we haven't received yet," said Tim Bennett, Public Information Officer for the Walla Walla Police Department.

The semi-automatic pistol used in the shooting had been reported stolen earlier in August.
