SHOOTING: Two Young Children Accidentally Shot by Their Cousin

Two young children are in a Texas hospital after being accidentally shot by their cousin.

Family members tell police that a five-year-old boy found a loaded gun inside a laundry basket and his 10-year-old cousin tried to pull it away from him when it accidentally went off, shooting the boy in the chest and a seven-year-old girl in the arm.

The boy underwent surgery and is listed in serious condition. The shooting is under investigation. No criminal charges have been filed. (Star-Telegram)
