Vigil for teen accidentally shot by twin brother while trying to kill snake

Nederland community comes together to pray for 14-year old, accidentally shot in the head

The Nederland community is devastated after a 14-year old boy was accidentally shot in the head Monday by his twin brother.

The teen, whose identity has not yet been confirmed by deputies, was visiting a family member in Liberty County.

The brothers were trying to shoot a snake in a ditch. As the teen was kneeling down, the brother fired the 22 rifle.

At last check, the teen was reported in critical condition at a Houston hospital.

Donations to help out the teen and his family can be dropped off at Cornerstone Church in Nederland. If writing a check, make sure to write down what the money is for.

Donations can also be sent to the Central Middle School Counselor, Kerri Hays.

Six News on Fox and KFDM's Simone Braithwaite reports how the community is coming together.
