DULUTH -- A 19-year-old Duluth man has died from injuries suffered in what police are calling an "unintentional shooting" Sunday in the city's Woodland neighborhood.

Duluth police on Monday identified the victim as Jacob Andrew Bergman, and said the person who fired the gun is a 21-year-old man who lives in the same home as Bergman.

Police were called to the 300 block of West Faribault Street just before 2 p.m. Sunday on a report of a shooting incident. Bergman was transported to a local hospital, where he later died from his injuries.

"Initial investigation of the shooting suggests that this was an unintentional shooting," Duluth police said in a news release Monday. "This is an ongoing investigation and no other information is available at this time."
