11 year old Detroit boy to be tried for shooting dead a Three year old

Fourth Estate Staff

Detroit, MI, United States (4E) – An 11-year-old Detroit boy appeared at a pre-trial hearing after being charged for shooting and killing a 3-year-old boy.

Wayne County Juvenile Court Referee Anthony Crutchfield set a $5,000 bond for the boy after ruling he will stand trial on charges of manslaughter; death by weapon aimed with intent but without malice; and felony firearm.

A conviction would send the boy to a juvenile detention facility until he turns 21 or sentenced until that age afterwhich a judge would determine if he’s rehabilitated or kept in prison longer.

The boy’s attorney, Beverly Anthony Walker, asked for a competency hearing. The defendant’s father, Corey Bryson, and his mother, Kwanna Luchie , attended the hearing.

The boy was playing with the victim, Elijah Walker, in a car parked at his father’s home in the 16000 block of Eastwood on the city’s east side Monday. The boy had a gun he found in the home’s bedroom closet and shot Walker in the face around 1:40 p.m., according to prosecutors and a police report of the incident.

Walker’s mother brought his body to the kitchen and called ‘1. Police arrived at the scene and called an ambulance that took the victim to St. John Hospital. Walker was pronounced dead on arrival.

Meanwhile, a GoFundMe page for Walker was launched Monday to raise money for his funeral…. MORE
