A 10-year-old boy shot his father as they were headed to school early Tuesday, according to Houston police.
Antonio Medardo Alvarenga, 40, was rushed to Memorial Hermann Hospital in good condition.
It happened in the 7000 block of Bissonnet in southwest Houston.
Detectives say Alvarenga was driving his son and daughter, both 10, to school. They say the boy pulled a pistol from his school backpack and shot his dad through the back of the driver’s seat.
The officers took the boy to Children’s Assessment Center for further questioning.
No charges have been filed but the investigation continues.
