A Pennsylvania teen is facing criminal charges after he deliberately shot his 9-year-old brother dead during a Cops and Robbers game early Wednesday.

Brayden Leroy Wright, 13, discharged a loaded gun at his brother when he refused to play with him in their living room. He told detectives that he placed the weapon behind the victim’s head and pulled the trigger calling the shooting a practicing.

The boy’s father said that he kept two loaded guns at an unlocked compartment for protection and didn’t know his teen son knew about them.

Wright is currently in custody without bail on criminal homicide and aggravated assault charges. His brother passed away from the fatal gunshot wound at Waynesboro Hospital.
