Boy, 3, finds gun and kills baby brother


A BOY of three shot his eight-month-old baby brother dead after finding a gun in an apartment.

Police said the baby was shot in the stomach at a flat where four adults, who have not been identified, were present.

The gun was later found in a car used to drive the baby to hospital in Houston, Texas.

Medical staff contacted police after nobody in the apartment called 911 to report Friday’s shooting.

News footage showed a woman crying outside the block of flats and a young boy wearing a Spider-Man costume sat with an adult.

Assistant Police Chief Wendy Baimbridge urged parents to lock up their guns and added: “Please pray for this family. This is just a tragic event.”
