On Wednesday, Gore told ABC13 she believes investigators mistakenly identified her as a person of interest. She said she wasn't around when Allen was shot to death.

Jordan Allen Sr., the boy's dad, told ABC13 that his son was on the second floor balcony making TikTok videos when he was shot in the head with a stray bullet.

The child was rushed to Texas Children's Hospital where he died on Monday when doctors took him off the ventilator.

ABC13 reached out to the investigators over the case, but are waiting to hear back.
