Police in Columbus say a 13-year-old boy was fatally shot by another teenager while they were playing with a handgun.

A police report says Shaquez Brunner was shot once Tuesday afternoon at an apartment with three older boys on the city’s west side. He was pronounced dead at a hospital about an hour later.

Police say they determined a 16-year-old was handling the gun when Brunner was shot, and they charged him with a delinquency count of murder.

The 16-year-old told police he accidentally fired the gun.

    And who owned the gun the 16 year old got his hands on? Why isn’t that irresponsible ass being charged?
