HENDERSON CO. (KYTX) - A Henderson County 11-year-old is recovering in a Dallas hospital after accidentally being shot by another child.

The shooting happened around 1:30 Thursday afternoon just off FM 59 in the Cross Roads Community.

Law enforcement isn't releasing the child's name, however they are saying the child was shot by another child who lived at the home. It's not clear how or if the two have family relation.

Sheriff Ray Nutt said the child is in stable condition. In the meantime, as with any child involved shootings, CPS is also investigating. There is no word on whether or not the child's parents/guardians will face any charges.
