San Antonio – Around 9:30 Friday morning, an 11 year old boy, playing with a gun, accidentally shot himself in the head at a west side apartment complex according to San Antonio authorities.
After finding the gun hidden in a drawer at The Terraces at Haven for Hope, 703 North San Marcos, near 410 Loop, the boy seemingly not knowing the gun was loaded, turned it on himself and pulled the trigger. He is currently in critical condition at an area hospital.
“I believe the dad thought the gun was secured or secluded at least,” Police Chief William Mcmanus said. “He didn’t realize he (the son) would get it but he did, and that’s where we are right now.” (KSAT)
