|Matthew Spann, age 15|
From the article:
Deputy Sheriff Terry Simons said Matthew had been transferred to the Corpus Christi hospital.
Matthew was in a pasture near Bayer Road with another 15-year-old boy when a .22-caliber rifle accidentally discharged, resulting in a self-inflicted injury to the head, O'Connor said.
"Preliminarily, it looks like it was an accidental discharge," he said.Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
