COLLINSVILLE — A young man died in what police said may be an accidental shooting Sunday.
Andrew Birch, 23, of Collinsville died of a single gunshot wound to the head early Sunday morning. Collinsville police were called to the 600 block of Arrowhead at 1:30 a.m. on reports that someone had been shot. First responders transported Birch to Anderson Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Collinsville Police Maj. Tom Coppotelli said that there were three people located inside the residence along with Birch, and all individuals are cooperating with the investigation.
