Nacogdoches sheriff: Boy shoots brother

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - A six-year-old boy is in serious condition in a Dallas hospital after his five-year-old brother apparently accidentally shot him, according to the Nacogdoches County sheriff.

Sheriff Kerss said the aunt of the siblings was babysitting the brothers and cleaning around the house and moved the family's shotgun. The five-year-old then loaded the gun and accidentally shot him.
