Authorities say a teen was accidentally shot by his brother, but he has survived the experience.

According to the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office, a 21-year-old accidentally shot his 18-year-old brother in the face overnight at a home in the 4900 block of Surrey Park Circle in Cinco Ranch. The men were in separate rooms of the home when the older brother was doing something with AR-15 rifle. He reportedly didn't realize it was loaded, and a round struck his brother in the face.

Authorities say the gun belonged to the brother who accidentally fired it. There's no word if any charges will be filed.
