CHILDRESS, Texas (AP) - Authorities in the Texas Panhandle say a 10-year-old boy has died after an accidental shooting.

The Lubbock Independent School district tells KCBD-TV (https://bit.ly/1vZ6IsQ ) parents were notified Sunday about the death of Jackson Roberts. Childress police say a 14-year-old boy thought he was playing with an unloaded gun on Friday and accidentally shot the Lubbock boy in the left shoulder.

Roberts was taken to a Childress hospital where he later died. He was a fourth-grader at Roscoe Wilson Elementary.

The district says crisis counselors will be available at the school on Monday.
