JACKSON, Mich. (AP) – A Jackson County teenager has been convicted in the shooting death of his 20-year-old brother.

The Jackson Citizen Patriot reports a jury found Riley Spitler guilty Thursday of second-degree murder as well as pot possession and felony gun charges. The now 17-year-old was charged with open murder in the December 2014 death of Patrick Spitler.

The five-day trial included about 15 witnesses and Riley Spitler’s version of events via police interviews and his 911 call. He told a dispatcher he was “playing around” and “accidentally shot” his brother, and later can be heard saying, “please breathe.”
