6-Year-Old Boy Accidentally Shoots Himself With Loaded Gun

American police in Houston have revealed that a 6-year-old boy has died after locating an unsecured gun in a bedroom and accidentally shooting himself.

According to USA News, police say the shooting happened Sunday morning at an apartment as the boy’s mother ran errands and he was being watched by a teenage sibling. Other siblings were also home.

Sgt. Anthony Turner says a teenage sister heard what sounded like a firecracker and discovered the victim, who died at a Houston hospital. Turner says an adult sister told police she kept a gun to protect against crime.

It’s the third such child death in less than a week.
