A 13-year-old boy has been arrested for allegedly killing his 16-year-old cousin over an Xbox. According to the Chicago Tribune, the 13-year-old argued with his 16-year-old cousin over the video game system.
Hours after their argument, the 13-year-old boy grabbed a 9mm semi-automatic handgun. Around 5:50 a.m. on Jan. 5, the 13-year-old approached his sleeping 16-year-old cousin and shot him in the head. The 16-year-old was rushed to Northwester Memorial Hospital where he died 90 minutes later.
Police later found a fired 9mm cartridge in the 13-year-old’s bedroom. They haven’t revealed how he obtained the gun.
The teen was arrested and charged with first degree murder.
