SANFORD - State and Sanford police are investigating the shooting death of a Sanford man at his home Wednesday evening.

Mike Harmon, 71, died at his home at 7 Brunelle St. (an earlier version of this story listed it as Buzzell St.) as he was showing a teenage boy a handgun and the gun went off.

Harmon was a retired reporter-editor-columnist for the Portland Press Herald where he was known simply as M.D. Harmon.

The 16-year-old was handling the gun at the time, according to a press release from Dept. of Safety spokesman Steve McCausland.

An autopsy is scheduled at the State Medical Examiner's office, and the case will be reviewed by the Attorney General's Office.

The teenager and his father, both from North Berwick, were at the home at the time. Detectives said everyone has been cooperating.
