Harris County detectives recovered the gun and issued a stern warning to parents.

"As a father myself, I would tell you to be more vigilant in your children's life. Today's social media has really put today's children out of context with real life," said Sgt. Felipe Rivera, with the Harris County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators would not say where the gun came from.
