From an article:
Brian Ariel Bazan, 29, was comparing hunting firearms with one of his cousins when Bazan’s nephew got a hold of a .45-caliber handgun, said a witness who refused to give a name.
The 14-year-old grabbed the gun, fired once and injured two women, Morales said. The single projectile struck a 19-year-old in the upper chest, went through her back and struck a 45-year-old in the leg.
First responders transported both women to McAllen Medical Center for treatment, Morales said. Doctors treated and released the 45-year-old, while the 19-year-old remained hospitalized in stable condition Monday. Medics expect her to make a full recovery.
Investigators do not believe it was the child’s intent to harm his two relatives, but a McAllen municipal judge charged him with deadly conduct, a Class A misdemeanor, and transferred him to the custody of the Hidalgo County Juvenile Detention Center.
Bazan also faced misdemeanor Class A charges for making the firearm accessible to his nephew, Morales said. A judge issued him a $3,000 personal recognizance bond.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
