4-year-old boy shot by upstairs neighbor in NW Houston

HOUSTON, Texas — A 4-year-old boy is recovering from a gunshot wound after his upstairs neighbor allegedly shot him through the floor at a Northwest Houston home on Black Friday.

The family’s upstairs neighbor, Nahum Flores, is accused of firing a rifle through his floor. Authorities say Flores told police he accidentally fired the shot.

The bullet reportedly punched through the ceiling, and then hit the floor.

“I just heard a BAM from inside the house. I got really scared and my kids started screaming,” according to the boy’s mother, who didn’t want to be identified.

She was in the bedroom getting dressed to take the family shopping for Black Friday and the kids were playing in the living room when the bullet struck.

“I didn’t realize something happened to his leg actually, until I pulled down his pants and I saw there was a hole and I started crying and I called my husband, ‘Hey, let’s take him to the hospital!’”

The family reportedly drove the little boy to a nearby hospital. The bullet left a large gash on the boy’s right leg and 14 stitches to close it all up, his mother said.

“I heard a gunshot from around the corner so I ran that way because my kids had just gone to that corner,” said Theresa, a neighbor who heard the shot and called 911.

She said the distraught father exchanged words with Flores moments after the shooting.

Flores, who is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, is already out on bond. We tried talking to his brother-in-law, who would not comment on the charges.

The little boy is home, but his mother says he is afraid of others coming to hurt him. Both families still live just a floor apart.

The bullet holes remain unrepaired. The family says it wants to move, so the kids will feel safer.
