Boy, 13, charged with 12-year-old brother’s murder


KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE — On Tuesday, around 7:00 p.m., officers responded to a shooting call at a home in the 2100 block of Needham Lane.

When officers arrived on the scene they discovered a 12-year-old male child deceased in a bedroom.

Initially, police say it appeared the male died as a result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

As the investigation continued and additional evidence was examined, police say it ‘became apparent’ the child died as a result of a homicide.

Multiple interviews were conducted throughout the night.

Early Wednesday morning, the victim’s 13-year-old bother was charged with First Degree Murder.

The suspect is being held in the Richard L. Bean Juvenile Detention Center.

Names were not released.
