HOUSTON (KPRC) – Police say a man posing with a gun and taking selfies was killed when the gun went off Tuesday in Houston, Texas.
Family members said the victim is 19-year-old Deleon Alonso Smith.
“It’s the worst feeling in my life,” said the victim’s uncle Eric Douglas.
“It’s a numb feeling. It’s still unbelievable. Yesterday was my birthday and he came to wish me happy birthday, and now this kind of news,” said Smith’s grandmother Alma Douglas.
