FORNEY, Texas — UPDATE [Nov. 25] A 14-year-old was arrested and charged overnight for unlawful carrying of a weapon and making a firearm accessible to a child after a reported "accidental" shooting on Tuesday evening at a Forney-area residence that left a one-year-old dead and a nine-year-old injured.

Authorities say the gun used in the shooting allegedly belonged to the 14-year-old, who was a neighbor to the siblings involved in the shooting.

Multiple law enforcement officials and neighbors have confirmed to inForney.com that the residence was a single-parent household. Reportedly, the parent left their three juvenile children unattended for an unknown amount of time to run an errand.

According to investigators, during the parent’s absence, the 14-year-old neighbor showed up with a loaded handgun and was invited in — what happened next remains under investigation.

A short time later the 9-year-old was found with a gunshot related injury that severed a finger and the infant perished due to a fatal gunshot wound to the head.

The 14-year-old was charged with unlawful carrying of a weapon, a class A misdemeanor; making a firearm accessible to a child, a class A misdemeanor; and was booked into the Van Zandt County Juvenile Detention Facility.

Investigators obtained a search warrant for the residence of the 14-year-old, who was not identified because of their age.

Child Protective Services has also launched an investigation into the incident, according to authorities.
