HOCKLEY, Texas (AP) – Prosecutors will consider whether to file charges after a 12-year-old Houston-area boy allegedly shot and killed his younger brother. Waller County authorities say the death of 11-year-old Gage Rogers appears to have been as an accident.
Sheriff Glenn Smith said Monday that the victim and his older brother apparently were not supervised when they played with a shotgun. Officials believe the parents were at work when the boys found the weapon in a closet at their home in Hockley on 0/7/30/2012.
Sad! We have got to keep weapons away from the reach of minors unsupervised, I understand why we would have them in the home however we have got to be more proactive!….Prayers to the family!
