5-Year-Old Shoots 7-Year-Old Brother In Texas

A 5-year-old boy shot his 7-year-old brother with a .22 rifle in Houston, Texas on Tuesday night.

According to KTRK, the two boys were in a bathtub when the 5-year-old got out, found the rifle, and then shot his brother. The 7-year-old boy was wounded and is recovering at an area hospital. Police said that at least one adult, the mother, was inside the residence at the time.

“They were non-life threatening,” said Sgt. Ryan Gardiner. “It was one bullet hole that went through his lower back.”
