Harris County Child Dies of Accidental Home Gunfire

A child has died at his west Harris County home in what investigators believe was an accidental shooting.

Sheriff’s deputies say a 12-year-old boy was handling or playing with a firearm while home alone on Thursday – and the gun went off, killing him.

He was discovered by his parents when they returned to their home in the 21300 block of Finbury Oaks Lane.The investigation continues.

Because the firearm was accessible, the case may be given to a Harris County grand jury to decide if the parents will face charges in their son’s death.
