Warrant issued for man in Houston school shooting

A warrant has been issued for a man accused of allowing a 6-year-old boy access to a gun that the child accidentally fired inside an elementary school cafeteria in Houston.

The boy and two other children suffered minor injuries in the April 19 incident.

Police spokesman Kese (kees) Smith said Tuesday that Wrolandrea Hensley, who knows the boy's mother, is being sought on a misdemeanor charge of making a handgun accessible to a child. The charge was filed Monday.

Smith would not say if the gun is registered to Hensley.

The boy, whose name has not been released, took the pistol to Ross Elementary School. Police believe the boy accidentally fired the gun as he showed it to friends. That child, another 6-year-old boy and a 5-year-old girl were hurt.
