    “I cannot remember a time where we have charged someone so young with taking a life,” Wayne County Prosecutor Kym L.

    Detroit Boy, 11, Charged With Manslaughter in Fatal Shooting of 3-Year-Old

    by Erik Ortiz

    An 11-year-old Detroit boy was arrested after he allegedly killed a 3-year-old with a handgun Monday — a rare case involving a suspect so young, local prosecutors say.

    The suspect has been charged as a juvenile with manslaughter (death by weapon aimed with intent but without malice) and for possessing a felony firearm, according to NBC affiliate WDIV. His bail was set at $5,000 on Wednesday, and he faces a pretrial hearing next week.

    The victim — identified by his family as Elijah Walker — was shot in the face and died instantly, the station said...

    JMO whoever let that child access a gun needs to be charged for the death too. Apparently it was not even an isolated incident.

    Police also are investigating reports that the 11-year-old pulled a gun on a neighbor during an argument last week, the source said. Meanwhile, federal authorities are trying to trace an AK-47 assault rifle taken from the shooting scene to determine if it was used in any other crimes, the source said.

    From the WDIV update:

    ...The older boy's mother, Kwanna Luchie, said they're sorry for what happened and that it was an accident.

    "My son's not a bad child like everybody say he is. He's a good child," Luchie said.

    She blames her son's father for not locking up his gun.

    "He should get something, he shouldn't just walk away for free," Luchie said. "If my son have to go through this, he should too."

    The 11 yr old pulled a gun on a neighbor a week ago? WHY were there still guns in the home? Didnt anyone report that? The father should be in jail , imo.

    An 11-year old can decide where he lives now? If his, um, caretakers own guns, what is he supposed to do about it?

    Shouldn't this be a duty for his guardians? they need to refrain from exposing him to guns.

    I don't get it. What does "intent without malice" mean? That the 11-year-old intended to pull the trigger but without intending to harm the 3-year-old? It sounds like the 11-year-old didn't really comprehend the damage a gun could do. When he realized that Elijah was injured, he did the right thing by running and telling the little boy's mother.

    Maybe they decided to charge the 11-year-old because there had been other incidents with him involving a firearm which LE responded to, so they thought he should know better than to play with a gun? But, it seems LE should have cited the father in the earlier incidents for not having the gun properly locked up and removed the boy from the home.

    Pulling a gun on someone during an argument....sounds like the boy was imitating behavior he'd observed previously in an adult. He should have been removed from that environment much sooner and the owner of the gun(s) held accountable.

    After the boy's hearing, his father claimed that the incident “'has been hard for me.' He added: 'I have a camera system around my house and that’s what saved me.' He did not elaborate." http://www.detroitnews.com/story/new...-boy/31165485/

    That parent is only concerned about himself! Why isn't he being held accountable for a this preventable tragedy???

    I don't understand why the father is not being charged. He allowed the child to get his hands on a loaded weapon, REPEATEDLY. I guess I can see them letting him off easy the first time, but it happened again a week later---and no consequences? Even though a tragedy happened because of it. I blame the father equally if not more than the 11 yr old. I don't get it.
