HOUSTON (KXAN) — A family is mourning a 2-year-old’s death after he found a gun in his home and shot himself on Sunday, local NBC affiliate KPRC reports.
The child was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance, but he was pronounced dead when they arrived.
Investigators found a 9-mm semi-automatic pistol on a couch inside the home.
KPRC reports officers called the accident “tragic” but “totally preventable” and are still piecing together what happened.
It is still unclear if any charges will be filed.
