HARRIS COUNTY, Texas – A 5-year-old boy shot and critically injured his 6-year-old brother at their home in east Harris County, deputies said Monday.
Relatives say the young brothers loved to play cops and robbers.
“He may have picked up the wrong weapon thinking that it was a toy,” said Thomas Gray, an uncle. “But this weapon was not a toy and it was a real gun and he actually pointed it at my other nephew and fired it.”
Guess they had a bunch of guns laying around and the boy accidentally picked it up and shot his brother. It could have happened to anyone!
