A local mother is facing a felony charge for allegedly delaying hospital treatment of her teenage son's gunshot wound until she researched treatment options online.

Deborah Tagle was arrested Friday after delayed treatment for her son's gunshot wounds. Police say that instead of seeking immediate medical treatment, the mother sought advice from the medical website, WebMD.

He was shot Tuesday evening at the family's home in Santa Fe, about 30 miles southeast of Houston. Police say a friend of the 14-year-old son was playing with a handgun and pointed it at him when it went off, wounding the boy in the thigh.

Tagle is now free on bond. She's charged with injury to a child.
