On Thursday night in Fort Worth, an unidentified man pulled out his handgun to show it to teenager German Serrano. The trigger was then pulled accidentally, the man claims, and the 14-year-old fell to the ground with a bullet hole above his left eye. Other visitors at the house then took the boy to John Peter Smith Hospital. Serrano lived for only one more day.

"It's sad, because he's young. I mean, why are they playing with a gun in the first place? The 24-year-old should know that," said neighbor Marina Sidon.

The man is in police custody facing questions.

The man must've also forgot gun rule #1. Sad.
