SIDNEY — A 28-year-old Sidney man died Sunday in an accidental shooting.

Cheyenne County Attorney Paul Schaub said Donald L. Vizina had been at a friend’s home when the shooting occurred. The friend told authorities that he found Vizina in a bedroom with a firearm and called 911 after a shot was fired.

An autopsy has been conducted. Preliminary findings were that Vizina died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. The death has been determined to be accidental, Schaub said.
