HOUSTON – Charges have been filed in the case of a 10-year old boy who apparently shot himself dead on Friday afternoon.

According to police, the accidental shooting occurred in front of the boy’s younger sister.

Now charges have been filed against 32-year-old Milton Almanza. Almanza is charged with ‘making a firearm accessible to a child.’ He’s in jail with a court date set for May 27.

Houston police say the young victim in the case was handling a pistol he’d found inside a north Houston auto repair shop.

He and his sister were there Friday afternoon as their mother brought in the family car to be fixed at Innovations Automotive on Irvington Boulevard.

Investigators believe the 10-year old had been exploring in the office while his mother was outside. He got into a drawer where the shop owner kept a semi-automatic handgun.
