A Garland, Texas man named Daniel Boor died from a gunshot to the head after his 12-year-old son accidentally shot him Friday afternoon.
The 53-year-old Boor was teaching his son how to shoot on their 10-acre property in Bulverde when the accident happened. Boor was shot in the head and succumbed to the injury.
The community is saddened by the tragic accident. Local gun expert Jaime Correa says it is not uncommon for kids that age to learn to handle a gun. "The rules of gun safety are no different at the public range, at the private range and your own backyard."

Of all the rules, Correa says it is most important to always assume a gun is loaded, don't keep your finger on the trigger and always be aware of where the gun is pointed.
