What was originally investigated as an accidental shooting in Tatum last night, has now landed one man in police custody. Little information is being released by authorities. Officials say a man reported last night that he was cleaning a gun at a residence, when the gun went off. The bullet struck and killed a 17-year- old girl.
Rusk County Sheriff's authorities say that the man, Sergio Orana, is in custody and will be arraigned on formal charges on Monday. Those charges have not been released. The victim's name is being withheld pending notification of family.
