LONGVIEW, Texas (KETK) – A Longview man has been arrested and charged in the shooting death of a child.
David Russell Stice, 50, was booked into the Gregg County Jail Thursday on a charge of making a firearm accessible to a child causing death. He was released Friday on a bond of $20,000.
Stice’s arrest stems from a shooting incident on August 9 that took the life of a 10-year-old child.
According to police, they were called to a residence in Longview for a shooting. When they arrived, they found a child with what they described as “life-threatening injuries.”
The child died in a local hospital.
The case remains under investigation.
