    TX - Boy, 3, dies after finding loaded gun, Harris County, 27 Feb 2015

    Deputies: Boy, 3, shot in head in northwest Harris County

    A 3-year-old boy was airlifted to the hospital after being shot in the head in northwest Harris County, according to Harris County Precinct 5 deputy constables. The shooting happened shortly before 1 p.m. Friday in the 7400 block of Betanna Drive in the Hearthstone subdivision.

    Neighbors said the family involved moved in recently.

    The mother told deputies she was home with her two sons when her 3-year-old somehow got access to a gun and shot himself in the head.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Once an investigation is complete, a grand jury will most likely decide if the boy's parents will face any charges.

    Unbelievable that another boy died on Sunday in Houston from accidentally shooting himself. http://www.click2houston.com/news/br...mself/31553102

    And, now there is a possible 3rd child who has shot him/herself today again in Houston. http://www.click2houston.com/news/de...mself/31564960

    WTH???!!!

    OMG why are these children finding these loaded guns. Why are parents not taking care of the guns. There is no reason for a toddler/child to get a hold of a gun. Very sad cases, 3 in the last 4 days in the link above. Ones to many.

    The one I posted earlier from today was a 6 yo boy who was shot by his 5 yo brother. He is in critical condition.

    In the wake of three separate accidental shootings of children in the past four days – two of them fatal – Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia held a press conference to talk firearm safety today.

    Maybe this thread should be called children who "accidentally" shoot themselves or other children?

    Police say a 3-year-old Coffee County boy has shot his 18-month-old brother in the head.

    The Coffee County Sheriff's Department said the toddler shot the infant with a .25-caliber automatic pistol in a home Tuesday afternoon

    (snip)

    Sgt. Danny Ferrell told the Associated Press that investigators are still trying to determine how the child was able to get a hold of the weapon.

    Pretty obvious that the 3yo got a hold of an unsecured gun. Will these parents and the other parents in this thread ever faces charges??
