Sources: Child Shot in Face, Tom Green County Sheriff Investigates


Last night at around 10 p.m., what was reported as a juvenile boy with a gunshot wound was rushed to Shannon Medical Center via private vehicle. The boy had been shot in the face, a report on the radio stated.

San Angelo police were summoned to Shannon to investigate. According to SAPD spokesman Sgt. Cade Solsbery, the police did investigate the shooting. The officer’s report from last night confirms that the child was shot in the face, he said.

The incident took place in Carlsbad, giving jurisdiction of the law enforcement investigation to the Tom Green County Sheriff’s Office. SO spokeswoman Christina Lopez confirmed that the juvenile was shot in the 11000 block of Midland in Carlsbad. The TGCSO Criminal Investigations Division is handling the case. Lopez said that it is likely that no charges will be filed. The shooting appears to be an accident, she said.

The juvenile is recovering at the hospital. Lopez said the shooting victim is likely to live. The juvenile sustained “non-life-threatening injuries,” Lopez said.

The TGCSO is not releasing more information about the victim due to his juvenile status.

Okay this kid is the same kid that threaten to shoot my son last week. This kid and a 20yr old had beat up the boy his shot and his little brothers just 2 weeks ago (to jump them in their gang). I went out there with my son and told his Parents that he threatened to shoot my son. She said "he doesn't even have a gun to shoot anybody with". however when we were leaving the kid comes out on the porch with a gun anr the Dad starts with chainsaw and starts coming in out direction. THE PARENTS AND CHILD SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE. because they had prior knowledge of him having the gun. If it were anybody else they would be charged with unlawful possession of a firearm. And they wonder why the kids these days do what they do because there are no consequences for their actions, same with the parents. This is very serious and I have been held responsible for my kid being late to school having truancy filed against me. But this kid shoots another kid in the fave by pointing it straight at him and pulling the trigger ....THAT IS NO ACCIDENT!!!!

Miss Bes, did you ever think that if you would have called the sheriff when your son was threatened that this probably would have never happened? I mean honestly, does it really take 3 carloads of people to go over and confront a 16 yr old boy?

We did not go to confront a boy. I went to make his mom aware of what was going on, that her son threatened to shoot my son. So that HIS PARENTS COULD ADDRESS THE PROBLEM. I don't expect anybody else to take responsibility for my children. Neither should those patents. So regardless of us going out there or calling the cops, in now way says that I could have prevented that boys actions. Which is exactly what i did. And my son's life was being threatened so I don't really care what it takes, I would do whatever it takes to make sure my son wasn't going to be a victim. So consider that if his parents would have acted and corrected their son that night that this would have been prevented. Me nor my son is at fault here. It's sad that you don't see where prevention or responsibility lies.
