    TX - Matthew Cisneros, 13, shot to death, 12yo boy charged, 26 Feb 2015

    Boy, 12, arrested in shooting that killed friend
    NORTH TEXAS -- Police have arrested a 12-year-old boy in the death of a 13-year-old who was found dead at his home last month -- with a pistol nearby, reports CBS Dallas-Fort Worth.

    At first, there reportedly were indicators Matthew Cisneros' death may have been a suicide, but police kept investigating. Last week, they arrested a 12-year-old friend and charged him with manslaughter, according to the station.

    The name of the 12-year-old suspect can't be released because he is a minor. He is reportedly held at the Henry Wade Juvenile Justice Center, according to CBS DFW.

    A Garland Police Department spokesperson told reporters what the investigation revealed.

    "They were playing with a gun and [the 12-year-old] had it in his hand at the time. When it went off, it shot Matthew," said Public Information Officer Joe Harn.

    Police say the 12-year-old has been forthcoming and admitted he ran away because he was afraid, the station reported. Investigators believe the shooting was accidental, but are still warning parents to make sure weapons in their homes are secured.
    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."

    Another Malevolent Firearm Acts Up

    Can understand ultra-cautious, strictly chronological, but non-accusatory wording of Garland Police Department spokesperson:
    ......................"They were playing with a gun and [the 12-year-old] had it in his hand at the time. When it went off, it shot Matthew..." bbm

    Cannot understand comment heaping blame on an inanimate object:
    ......................"The firearm probably had a criminal history..." bbm

    Yes (sarc & snarc) it was probably a hot-headed gun that just went off randomly all by itself, even yards away from human reach.

    No (no sarc, no snarc) incredibly sad, regardless of his state of mind or intent, if 12 yr old boy caused this death.
