DETROIT (WWJ) – The accidental shooting death of a four year old boy has been declared a homicide after an autopsy result. The shooter was his four-year-old cousin.
Police are calling the death of Jamel Witcher Jr. a tragic accident. He was shot in the chest Thursday after his cousin picked up the gun near a bed while they were watching television.
