CLEVELAND (AP – April 13, 2015) — Cleveland police haven’t released information about how a 3-year-old boy got access to the handgun he used to fatally shoot a 1-year-old relative.

Braylon Robinson died less than an hour after he was shot in the face Sunday afternoon. Police say Braylon’s mother, 23-year-old Shanee Robinson, told officers she had her back turned to him, the 3-year-old and another 1-year-old when she heard a gunshot and found Braylon lying on the floor.

Police say the 1- and 3-year-old are relatives of Shanee Robinson’s but were not Braylon’s siblings. A police spokesman says the two children were turned over to their mother.

The Cleveland police chief says charges will likely be filed when it’s determined who owns the gun and how the child got access to it.
