DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A Des Moines man has been arrested in connection to the shooting death of his 4-year-old daughter.

Police say 24-year-old Adam Mead turned himself in Thursday. Reports say Mead faces charges of involuntary manslaughter, neglect of a dependent person and two counts of making firearms available to minors. Court records do not list an attorney.

Mead's daughter, Lillium, died April 21 of a single gunshot wound to her chest. Mead told authorities he set a loaded .45 caliber handgun on a dresser. The girl got a hold of the gun and shot herself. She was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Police say the evidence supports Mead's version of events. If he is convicted of all the charges, he faces up to 17 years in prison.
