Authorities said this is when he discharged the gun, which proved fatal.

“It appears the 6-year-old got up and went into a room and found a firearm and discharged it,” HPD homicide Sgt. Anthony Turner said in an interview with Eyewitness News.

Authorities responded at the Coppertree Village Apartments around 11:00 a.m.

The boy reportedly recived a transport to Texas Children’s Hospital, where they say he later died.

At the time of the incident, parents said they left him with an 18-year-old girl, along with his twin sister and a 14-year-old sibling.
