Around noon, reports say that officers with the fort worth police department responded to an incident where a sibling has allegedly shot another 4 year old sibling in their house while their mother slept.
Reports say the Tarant County Medical Examiner’s office name the 4-year-old’s as Truth Albright.
According to officer Jimmy Pollozani, who said
‘ No one else was hurt’, aside the fact that their mother was asleep in another room as at the time the shooting took place, no arrest have been made.
Pollozani also added:
It is too early in the investigation to determine if the shooting was accidental, Detectives are conducting interviews.
Guns are the second leading cause of death for children in the U.S., with nearly 1,700 killed by gun homicides every year, according to Everytown for Gun Safety.
It would appear that this is not the first time a tragic situation such as this has taken place in the area.
