Initially, witnesses told investigators the boy was jumping on the bed and and caused a gun on the bed to accidentally discharge.
Officials say subsequent interviews revealed George Coty Wayman pointed the gun at the boy and told him if he didn’t stop jumping on the bed he would shoot him, and he fired the gun and struck the boy in the back of the head.
They say evidence in the bedroom of the trailer corroborates the witness’s account.
You know if they had stuck to their story about a gun laying on the bed, there is every possibility that this murderer would have gotten off relatively lightly.
After all this is Texas, where children die from accidental shootings almost every day it seems.
Kind of makes you wonder just how many of those were truly accidental as well.
