Authorities say an East Texas woman was fatally shot after an 8-year-old boy picked up a rifle and it accidentally discharged at a home.
Anderson County Sheriff Greg Taylor said the boy picked up a rifle while in a room with the woman's husband, who was cleaning weapons Saturday.
The bullet hit 23-year-old Carmen Danielle Morris in the head. She was in another room.
The latest news from around North Texas.
The Elkhart woman died Sunday at the hospital.
Taylor said the boy was a relative of Morris' husband but was not the couple's child.
Taylor said it's believed that it was a tragic accident.
