Houston-Area Boy Dies After Bullet Comes Through Wall

Authorities say a 6-year-old boy has died after being struck in the head by a bullet that came through the wall of his family's Houston-area apartment from an adjacent unit.

The boy was pronounced dead Thursday night after being taken by helicopter to an area hospital.

Harris County sheriff's deputies say five people from a neighboring apartment were detained for questioning in the shooting.

After the bullet hit the boy in the upper head, his mother discovered him and called authorities.
