Mother of Shooting Child Victim Tells Her Side of the Story

The boys trespassed into a neighbor's backyard.  They were going through a parked car that they apparently knew a shotgun was kept.  As they were playing with it, it accidentally went off.   A ten year-old boy was accidentally shot and is in the hospital with no life threatening injuries. In the meantime, his mother tells us police are blaming the wrong boy for the shooting.

Andrea Washington's 10-year-old and 11-year-old boys were with a 9-year-old friend Monday night.  She says her 11-year-old was holding the back of the shotgun and the 9-year-old pulled the trigger. As her 10-year-old boy was running home, the gun went off and hit her son.

Andrea says he was not a look-out boy despite what police say. "He was coming to get me to tell me my son and the little boy had a gun," she said.

After seeing reports on NewsChannel 11, Andrea called us to get her side of the story out to the public. "I just don't want people to say that my son shot his brother.  He didn't. He's already upset that his brother has been shot.  They know they made a bad mistake," said Andrea.
