Authorities in the Texas Panhandle said a 10-year-old boy has died after an accidental shooting.
The Lubbock Independent School district told KCBD-TV that parents were notified Sunday about the death of Jackson Roberts. Childress police said a 14-year-old boy thought he was playing with an unloaded gun Friday and accidentally shot the Lubbock boy in the left shoulder.
Roberts was taken to a Childress hospital where he later died. He was a fourth-grader at Roscoe Wilson Elementary.
District officials said crisis counselors will be available at the school on Monday.
