ARLINGTON, Texas — Police say a 17-year-old boy has died following an apparent accidental shooting at a North Texas house.

Arlington police say the deadly gunfire happened early Thursday as the victim was visiting a 16-year-old boy. Sgt. Jeffrey Houston says the teens apparently were playing with a gun when it discharged, fatally wounding the 17-year-old in the head.

The 16-year-old boy has been charged as a juvenile with criminally negligent homicide. Police withheld his name because of his age. The name of the dead youth was being withheld until his family could be notified.
