A 13-year-old Pennsylvania boy is being charged as an adult with criminal homicide and aggravated assault after he fatally shot his 9-year-old brother because the boy wouldn’t play “cops and robbers” with him, according to police.
Pennsylvania State Police responded to a Waynesboro home just after 7 a.m. on July 8 and found the boy had been shot with a 9 mm handgun, according to a police statement. The boy was pronounced dead at Waynesboro Hospital.
Court documents filed in Franklin County shows bail was denied shortly after the 13-year-old was taken into custody. The teen is next due in court on July 24.
