4-year-old shoots, kills himself with dad’s stolen gun

HOUSTON, TX – You can’t imagine the grief, but you also can’t help but wonder about a home where a four year old can get his hands his father’s gun and kill himself.

But in court on Tuesday, the family of Marquiez Pratt made it clear he cared about his son.

“Ya’ll want to know something, he loved his son, he loved his son,” said an emotional family member leaving the courtroom.

Pratt is charged with endangering his son Jaiden, and possession of a controlled substance. He was let go on bail.

The Houston Police Department says Pratt may have been dealing drugs, and the gun that killed his son was stolen.
