Child Fatally Shot At Temple, Texas School

What was been shared at this time is a family was enjoying a picnic behind the elementary building, and the child had most likely been playing on the playground when they suffered a gunshot wound on school property. The one year old was transported to the hospital, and was later pronounced dead according to this KCEN article.

The child's body was then scheduled to be transported to the Dallas County Medical Examiner's office, and will undergo an autopsy and full forensic inspection. One can hope that some information already collected by the Temple PD is sensitive, and that is why so many questions have almost no answers at this time.

If you have any information, please contact the Bell County Crime Stoppers, or call Temple PD at 254-298-5500.
