By Benjamin Flowers: A 10-year-old boy from Milwaukee reportedly shot his mother in the face, killing her, because she wouldn’t buy him a virtual reality headset from Amazon, the New York Post reports.
The boy, whose identity was withheld due to his age, initially told investigators he was twirling the weapon, a semi-automatic Glock 43, around his finger and the weapon went off hitting his mother while she was in their basement doing laundry.
However, when authorities further questioned his story, he eventually confessed that he got the weapon from its lockbox and shot his mother when she woke him up a half hour early on November 21 and refused to buy him the item. The day after the shooting he logged on to his mother’s Amazon account and ordered the item himself.
Relatives reportedly told authorities that the boy has a history of disturbing behavior, including swinging his puppy around by its tail when he was still just an infant and causing an explosion by filling a balloon with a flammable liquid and then popping it. The boy also reportedly told relatives that he heard voices.
An aunt told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, that the boy has said he is sorry for killing his mother, but did so without a show of emotion.
The boy is reportedly being held in a juvenile detention facility but has been charged as an adult with first-degree reckless homicide. The item that he shot and killed his mother over is valued at US$399.99.
