SAN MATEO, Calif. An off-duty San Francisco police officer died over the weekend, but few details about his death were made available tonight.

Officer James Gustafson died of an apparent accidental gunshot wound in San Mateo County, according to Sgt. John Bragagnolo.

Gustafson, 23, was a resident of San Mateo. The San Mateo County coroner's office confirmed his death but would release no additional information.

His fellow officers, Bragagnolo said, were taking the news "pretty hard."
