A 10-year-old boy who shot and k!lled his 44-year-old mother last week in Milwaukee is being charged with first-degree homicide as an adult.
On November 21, around 7 a.m., a fatal shooting occurred close to 87th and Hemlock.
The boy was allegedly upset with his mother for waking him up early and denying him something from Amazon, according to a criminal complaint.
The boy was reportedly playing with the gun when it accidentally discharged, striking his mother, Quiana Mann, in the head, causing her to pass away.
According to the complaint, when the boy was first interviewed he said he was twirling the gun around his finger and it “accidentally went off.”
After k!lling his mom, the boy woke up his sister who then found their mother dead and called 911.
Due to his age, the boy was allowed to remain with his family.
However, the following day, the family contacted the Milwaukee Police Department with “serious concerns.”
The boy’s 26-year-old sister told detectives he has had “rage issues” all of his life and “five different imaginary people that talk to him.”
A therapist previously gave the boy a “concerning diagnosis” and the mother had placed cameras inside the home to watch him, according to the complaint.
Two weeks prior to the woman’s murd£r, “someone had unplugged these cameras.”
The sister also told detectives she learned that the morning after their mother’s d£ath, the boy logged onto their mother’s Amazon account and ordered an Oculus Virtual Reality Headset.
The complaint says a family member also alleged that the boy would pick their puppy up by the tail and “swing the puppy around until it whined and howled in pain.”
This allegedly occurred when the boy was just four-years-old.
An aunt told detectives that the boy never cried or showed remorse following his mother’s d£ath.
The complaint alleges the 10-year-old told his aunt that he was “actually aiming the gun at his mother.”
The day after his mother’s d£ath, the aunt said he apologized for k!lling his mom and then asked if his Amazon package arrived.
The 10-year-old has been charged with first-degree reckless homicide. If convicted, he faces a maximum of 60 years in prison.
