Teen Charged In Death Of Friend

(Memphis) A 15-year-old is charged after another teen was shot and killed in Memphis Tuesday morning.

Police say 13-year-old Cartrial Robertson and Darrin Wilson were playing with a gun when the gun accidentally went off.

Wilson is charged with Reckless Homicide.

Police originally were told Robertson showed up at a home in the 600 block off Hillcrest Street just before 3a.m. with a gunshot wound and collapsed.

A man who lives at the home said he and his girlfriend were at work at the time and her teenage boys were home alone.

He said officers found a gun inside the house and it’s possible all three boys were playing with the gun and it went off.

He said he doesn’t own a gun and doesn’t know where it came from.

Neighbors were alarmed when they learned the age of the shooting victim.

“Thirteen. Still a baby,”said Walter Holston.

They hope it wasn’t another case of a gun getting into the wrong hands.

“When parents not at home kids are going to do stuff. If you got a gun in the house there are safety locks to put on them, but if the parents don’t have a gun and somebody brings the gun what can the parents do?” said Greg Boyd.
