Boy, 13, charged with murder as juvenile in shooting death of 10-year-old Cumberland boy
CUMBERLAND, Ind.—A 13-year-old boy will be charged with murder as a juvenile in the shooting death of a 10-year-old Cumberland boy.
Anthony Harmon, Jr. died after he was shot in the head at Berkshire Square Apartments on May 27. He was found in the kitchen of an apartment and pronounced dead on the scene.
Cumberland police say the ages of the witnesses made the investigation difficult, because only young kids and teens were in the home at the time of the shooting. There were no adults in the apartment.
CBS4 spoke with Harmon’s family last week. The boy’s father and older sister told CBS4 they didn’t agree with police initially investigating the shooting as a homicide. The boy’s family said it was a terrible accident and not intentional.
A pre-trial conference is scheduled for June 30.
