MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Parkway Village man was arrested after the accidental shooting death of a 14-year-old boy by his younger brother back in May.
Tyree Washington was charged with criminally negligent homicide and aggravated child neglect involving serious bodily injury after the six-year-old found his 9 mm handgun. The gun was reportedly unsecured in a drawer in the children’s bedroom.
The child accidentally shot and killed his brother, Steven Brunson Junior, police said.
Washington was indicted in August and arrested this week.
A mugshot was not available at the time of posting.
