KNOXVILLE, TN – Police have charged a 13-year-old boy with murder after they say he shot and killed his 12-year-old brother.

The two boys had been home alone when the 13-year-old called his parents, who in turn called police.

Responding officers found the 12-year-old in a bedroom dead from a gunshot wound. It was first thought that the gunshot had been self-inflicted, but after examining the evidence they felt his death was in fact a homicide.

After multiple interviews throughout the night, the 13-year-old was arrested on first-degree murder charges and placed in the Richard L. Bean Juvenile Detention Center.

Police have not released a motive behind the shooting, or if the boys’ parents will also face charges. The principal of Northwest Middle School, where both boys attended, released the following statement:

“We are deeply saddened by the tragic event that occurred Tuesday night involving two of our students. Our hearts are heavy as we offer our thoughts and prayers to the family during this very difficult time.”
