Police are investigating how officers failed to find a gun after searching and handcuffing an agitated Texas high school senior who shot himself in the head while riding in a police car.
Capt. Jon Moore with the Harris County Precinct 3 constable's office told ABCNews.com that while the deputies did a pat down on the boy, they did not do a complete search.
"The intent was not to arrest. The intent was to get him help," said Moore. "They just missed it, and I wish I could say different."
