HUNTSVILLE, Texas -- A 10-year-old boy shot his sister and then turned the gun on himself, investigators said.

Walker County sheriff's deputies said the shooting happened on Duke Road near Highway 30 late Thursday.

Detectives said Coby Tucker walked into his 15-year-old sister's room and opened fire.

Ashley Tucker was flown to Memorial Hermann Hospital in critical condition and was in good condition on Friday afternoon. She is a student at Huntsville High School.

Detectives said Coby fatally shot himself. He was a student at Huntsville Intermediate.

Investigators have not said how Coby got the gun, but they did say that the family has a gun safe in the home. The motive for the shooting is under investigation.

Deputies said the children's mother was at home at the time of the shooting but was apparently unaware that her son had a gun.

"Once she heard the shots, she responded and called 911," Detective Greg Williams said.

The children's father was at work at the time of the incident, investigators said.

Officials have not said if the parents will face any charges.

Deputies said they have never been called out to the family's home before.

Huntsville Independent School District officials said counselors are available to students or employees who need support.

Really, without any other info you post crap like that, how lame.

Sorry, but the truth is with the number of guns out there in house holds and the few times that this happens there is no reason to have more laws. It serves no purpose. More children are killed by the medical industry 83,000 a year compared to 3000 by guns (including gang shootings of 21 year old).

These numbers were published about 5 years ago by the AMA and used to push more gun control, but missed the point, as your comments do. How about more gun safety. There have been several stories about people attacking people with knifes and hurting them, but I only see the Brits setting limits on the size of knifes at this point.

Seeing how he really disliked his sister, if a gun wasn't available he probably would have just knifed her.

Gun control was non-existent if the boy knew how to get into the safe. At least the girl is still alive

While guns do kill people, even if you took away the guns, the would still just use a really large rock.

It's a lot easier to defend yourself from somebody with a 'really large rock' than somebody with a gun.
