The child had an alleged history of “worrying” behavior

Corresponding Sentinel magazine, the boy whose identity is being held, initially told police the shooting was an accident. However, relatives were dissatisfied with the story of the child. And finally he confessed the truth to the authorities.

The child’s family reportedly told authorities he received an “unspecified” but “worrying” mental health diagnosis from a therapist. They say he also had a history of dangerous behavior, which included setting living room furniture on fire and swinging a puppy by its tail.

The day of the shooting

The shooting happened in the early morning of November 21, just before 7 a.m. The child told authorities he took a gun from his mother’s bedroom and went down to the basement, where she was doing laundry. He said he twirled the gun in his fingers as it fired. The child then told his sister, who called the authorities.

Police allowed the child to stay with his family and no initial arrests were made. A day later, relatives expressed their concern.

According to the child’s aunt, he was knowingly in possession of keys that unlocked a box in which the gun was kept. He also admitted that before the shooting, his mother had reacted to the gun being pointed at her.

“Why did you do that? Put that away,” he recalled her words.

According to his aunt and sister, the child never cried or showed remorse for his mother’s death. Instead, he reportedly logged into her Amazon account and ordered an Oculus virtual reality headset the day after the shooting.

He confessed to the crime the same day, but still lacked emotion.

I’m really sorry about what happened. I’m sorry I killed my mother.

The boy went on to ask if his Amazon package had arrived.

Wisconsin law allows children to be charged like adults for certain serious crimes

The boy’s lawyer, Angela Cunningham, believes that “the adult system is absolutely ill equipped to cater to the needs of a 10-year-old child”. And says the whole circumstance is “an absolute family tragedy”.

This is an absolute family tragedy. I don’t think anyone would dispute or disagree with that.
