A five-year-old boy allegedly shot and killed his four-year-old brother on Sunday, after finding a gun in their home while their mom was asleep.

Truth Albright (4), from Fort Worth in the US, was rushed to hospital after his brother (who remains unnamed) accidentally shot him. The little boy died less than an hour later, Sun UK reports.

Local Police said they would not be charging the boy’s parents.

"It has been determined that there will be no charges filed at this time. It’s a very unfortunate situation that occurred,” a police spokesperson said.

Neighbour Larry Davison said he’d never spoken to the family but would often see two boys playing outside, Mirror UK reports.

Truth is one of three children to have been fatally shot on Sunday in that particular county which has a population of 2 million people.
