13-Year-Old Charged as Adult in Fatal Shooting of Brother

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.

The boy’s 13-year-old brother was taken into custody the same day and charged as an adult with criminal homicide and aggravated assault, the statement said.

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.
