YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Yellowstone National Park officials are investigating the death of a three-year-old Idaho girl in a campground.
Park rangers responded to the call Saturday morning at the Grant Village Campground from a woman who said her daughter had shot herself with a handgun.
Emergency responders tried to save the girl, but it was too late.
Part of the campground was closed off Sunday as park rangers investigated.
A federal law went into effect back in 2010 allowing visitors to have firearms in the park.
