The man has been arrested and charged with deadly conduct. Hoover said the names of the man charged and the victim have not been released. KPRC reported the man's name as Jason Speights.

"The man went over there to his car to get his dry clothes and he must have had the gun so he started playing with it and tried to do this and I thought he probably had it on safety and he accidentally shot the girl in her collarbone area," neighbor Micah Stewart told KPRC.

A stray bullet tore into a car parked about five houses away.
