Gun violence has been making headlines for years after many people continue to be divided on the Second Amendment and the rights of Americans. Now, another sad story is coming in that involves gun death.
According to reports, a man in Texas fatally shot a teenager outside his own home. The man had thought the teen was actually shooting a gun at his house. However, the teen was actually part of a group that was shooting paintballs at the man's home.
"A Texas homeowner who reportedly believed his house was being fired upon, fatally shot a 19-year-old man who was part of the group creating the 'disturbance' in the Houston neighborhood — but police later found paintball splatter at the scene and are reportedly now unsure if anyone besides the homeowner had an actual firearm," reported Fox.
Local police officers are now addressing the situation. They believe the homeowner's son may have been the target of this prank.
"Bullet casings — along with paintball splatter — were found outside the home, officials said. It was not immediately clear whether anyone in the group outside of the house was also armed with real guns," wrote Fox.
The young man who was killed has not yet been identified. Police are still working to determined exactly what happened. They incident serves as a grave reminder for all those who may think it's funny to prank others with fake guns.
