article imageStray Bullet Kills 7-Year Old Boy on Trampoline

By malan     Apr 11, 2007 in Crime
A 7-year old boy was killed by a stray bullet while jumping on his trampoline with several other children in the backyard of his Texas home. Neighbor arrested.
The children were all playing together on the trampoline when they heard the gunshots ring out. One boy was hit in the back and died shortly after being rushed to the hospital.
A search was performed on the neighborhood and led to the arrest of Jose Barrera Espitia who lives only two houses away from where they children were playing.
Police found a 22 rifle and believe it to be the source of the bullet but have still not figured out why he was shooting. Espitia has been charged with second-degree manslaughter and is being held without bail.
I can't imagine the shock the boy's family is experiencing over this unexpected loss of their child for no reason. One man's bad decision to randomly shoot a gun in his neighborhood has ended this young boy's life. I'm just glad more of the children that were playing together were not injured or killed.
