HARRIS COUNTY, Texas – Precinct 4 deputy constables are investigating after a 4-year-old boy accidentally shot himself in the head at a Houston-area home early Tuesday.

The shooting happened in the 15400 block of Redbud Berry Way around midnight.

Deputies say the boy, Bryson, and his younger sister were at their grandparents' house when Bryson somehow shot himself with a gun.

Deputies arrived and found him breathing, but unresponsive.  He was airlifted in critical condition to Memorial Hermann Hospital in the Texas Medical Center.

The grandparents are cooperating fully with investigators.
