From an article:
The two boys were playing with guns, a 12-gauge pump shotgun and a 20-gauge shotgun, unsupervised around 11:15 a.m. on Sunday.
The guns were found in a bedroom closet, said Waller County Sheriff Glen Smith. The guns were supposed to be locked in the bedroom closet, deputies said. A shot from the 12-gauge struck the younger brother, 11, in the left shoulder, Smith said.
The older boy called his mother and told her his brother had been hurt, Smith said. She drove home from work in Magnolia and called 911.
The 11-year-old was taken to Tomball Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead about 12:26 p.m.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
