BOSTON (AP) — A newspaper reports that Boston police responded to several calls on reports of violence in the past year at the house where a 14-year-old boy is accused of accidentally shooting and killing his 9-year-old brother.
The Boston Herald reports that according to police reports it obtained, officers visited the apartment last June on a report of a 13-year-old boy who hit his brother and his mother and threw his brother to the ground.
The caller also said the suspect pushed his mother to the ground and threatened to kill her.
In May, the mother told officers the child was missing from a state facility for children.
The teen will be arraigned Monday on delinquency charges of involuntary manslaughter and illegal possession of a firearm related to the Friday shooting death.
