12-year old San Antonio boy shoots self in chest

A 12-year old boy shot himself in his chest at home in San Antonio, Texas, in an apparent unintentional shooting.

From the article:
Police were called to the home in the 500 block of Mahota Drive near Highway 90 and Hunt Lane just before 8:00 p.m. Friday.

According to investigators, the boy was alone in a bedroom when others in the house heard the gunshot. When they went to check on him, they found him in the room with a gunshot wound to the chest.

The boy was taken to Unversity Hospital in unknown condition.

For now, police are calling this an accidental shooting.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
