From an article:
The emergency call for a gunshot wound came in at 12:42 p.m. Thursday at the Tim and Tiffany Scott residence between Forestburg and Saint Jo.
Mitchell said the child was wounded with a handgun and the shooting appears to have occurred on the front porch of the home.
Emergency medical personnel went to the residence, but Truman Scott was pronounced dead at the scene. Justice of the Peace David Allen was called to the scene and he ordered the body transported to the Southwest Institute for Forensic Science in Dallas for an autopsy.
Mitchell said the shooting “appears to be accidental,” but he would not elaborate on any details, reiterating the case has been turned over to the ranger to investigate.
He said both parents and the boy’s other siblings were home at the time of the shooting.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
