On October 24, 2020, at about 4:15 pm, Deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office were
dispatched to the 23000 block of Owens Rd in Porter, Texas in reference to a Welfare Check. Upon arrival,
it was learned there was a three-year-old male child with a gunshot wound. Family and friends had gathered
earlier to celebrate the birthday of the three-year-old, and while playing cards, heard a gunshot. The child
was located with a gunshot wound to the chest. During the investigation, it was learned the child found the
pistol after it fell out of a family member’s pocket. The child was rushed to the Porter Fire Station which can almost be seen from the home across the railroad tracks. There he succumbed to his wounds. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of this tragic accident.
