Kids get to play with rifle: 5-year-old kills 4-year-old

The Victoria County [Texas] Sheriff’s Office continues to investigate the shooting death of a 4-year-old Victoria boy late Wednesday night.

The boy, whose name has not been released, was fatally shot in the abdomen by a 5-year-old sibling who was playing with a bolt action rifle in the back room of their home, Chief Deputy Terry Simons of the Victoria County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday.

The call came in at 10 p.m. from a home on Farm-to-Market Road 444, just south of Telferner, Simons said.

The parents were at the home at the time of the shooting, but the sheriff’s office is investigating to determine why the boy and his sibling were left unsupervised, Simons said…

The boy’s parents drove him to the Telferner Grocery and Market to meet with paramedics, who then rushed the boy to Citizens Medical Center.

The boy was pronounced dead at 10:31 p.m., Simons said.

Too sad. I think I’ll leave thoughts and comments up to you.
