Accidental Shooting in Texas - Three People Hurt Including a Baby - No Charges

Local news reports
According to police reports, several people were in the apartment at the time of the shooting. A 19-year-old woman was seated holding the infant. At the same time, a 21-year-old man was unloading a 9 mm pistol. 

When the pistol accidentally discharged, it struck the man in his left hand. It then struck the young woman in the left hand before striking the baby in the face. The bullet continued on and entered the residence next door, where it lodged in a piece of furniture. No one was injured in the adjoining apartment.

The investigation into this incident is continuing. No charges have been filed, and no arrests have been made in this incident. At the time, Sowell said the incident is being treated as an accidental shooting.
In Texas, as in most states, if it was an "accident" there will be no charges. They wouldn't want to deprive this young man of his god-given, Constitutionally-protected, basic human rights too lightly. He only shot three people including an infant through his reckless negligence.

What's your opinion?
