11 Year Old in Detroit Charged With Manslaughter

They sure do start young in tha D... An 11 year boy from Detroit has been charged with manslaughter today for fatally shooting a 3 year old. The child was visiting his father in the Eastern part of Detroit when he reportedly grabbed the handgun (obviously not secured, of course not), threw it out the window, and went outside to retrieve it once more. He then climbed into a car that was parked in the nearby yard. Soon after, the 3 year old joined him in the car and was shot in the face.

Since this is a minor, I cannot provide names or photo identification. His identity will be protected, but it's probably something like Tyrone, Jamal, or D'Quavius.

“I cannot remember a time when we have charged someone so young with taking a life,” the Wayne County prosecutor, Kym L. Worthy, said in a statement. “Very unfortunately and very tragically, the alleged facts in this case demanded it.”
