Boy, 14, Charged With Murder in Sister’s Shooting Death

OAKLAND, Calif. (January 31, 2014) A 14-year-old California boy has been charged with murder in the shooting death of his older sister, the boy’s attorney said.

The shooting stemmed from a dispute over laundry, authorities said.

The teen's attorney, Adante Pointer, said the charge includes a gun enhancement and said his client also faces three counts of felony gun possession.

Alameda County prosecutors have decided to charge the boy as a juvenile and not as an adult, police said.

He's scheduled to appear in court Monday.

Authorities say the boy shot his 17-year-old sister on Jan. 23 inside an apartment building in Oakland's Chinatown neighborhood.

The siblings were each parents of young children.

The boy surrendered to police Wednesday.
