Lake Havasu City police say a North Dakota man has died after he accidentally shot himself in the stomach while cleaning his gun.

Today's News-Herald reports that Sgt. Troy Stirling says 70-year-old Rod Iverson's wife came home Tuesday morning and noticed him slumped in his chair. He told her he was hurt.

The part-time Havasu resident had shot himself in the abdomen with a .9-mm handgun while cleaning multiple guns in his garage. Iverson died in the operating room at Havasu Regional Medical Center.
