HOUSTON — A young employee of a Cypress gun range is facing serious charges after a customer was shot in the head.

A Harris County grand jury has indicted Tyler Sutton, 21, for manslaughter in an accidental shooting that killed a customer in December 2017.

Investigators said Sutton was working the counter at Hot Wells Shooting Range  when he accidentally fired another customer's rifle, shooting a bullet through the window and into the parking lot, killing Joshua Cummings.

The sheriff's office is asking Sutton to turn himself in.

If convicted, he faces two to 20 years in prison.
