A tragic scene in Northeast Harris County overnight, a 4 year old little boy somehow gets a hold of a gun and shoots himself in the forehead.
That boy underwent surgery overnight at Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital and is in critical condition.
According to investigators with the Houston Police department the little boy lived in an apartment with his parents, a 2 year old sibling and his grandfather.
The family, who only speaks Spanish told investigators they thought the little boy was asleep in a bedroom when they heard the shot.
The parents and grandfather were all interviewed by police. So far, no charges have been filed against anyone in the case.
In Texas, it is against the law to leave a loaded firearm accessible to children.
