According to ABC News, the tragic shooting occurred on Saturday afternoon at a rural property in Conroe, which is about 50 miles south of Houston, according to Lt. Scott Spencer of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office. Spencer said police were called to a home in Conroe about 2:40 p.m. local time and found the young victim suffering from a single bullet wound to the chest. He said the boy was taken to a local hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

“Based on the investigation conducted by the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, a 12-year-old sibling has been charged with murder and is currently in custody in the Montgomery County Juvenile Detention Facility,” Lt. Scott Spencer of the sheriff’s office said in a statement on Sunday.”

The name of the juvenile charged in the case has not been released to the public and it is not clear if authorities would do so because he is a minor. The boy who died was also not named, either.

As of right now, Sheriff’s officials declined to say where the juvenile homicide suspect obtained the weapon. We will continue to keep you updated when more news has been shared.
