Haa! How a 12-Year-Old Boy Murdered His Mom Aged 29 (Photo)
A 12-year-old kid murdered and shot his mother, a native of Nigeria, in their Alabama home.
Initially claiming that an intruder had killed his mother, a Nigerian immigrant, in their US home, the youngster ultimately acknowledged that she had been inadvertently shot.
Ayobiyi Cook, a 29-year-old registered nurse also known as “Yo-Yo,” was found dead in her family’s Forestdale, Alabama house in the 2400 block of Freemont Avenue after midnight on August 6.
Initially, her son had told authorities that an intruder had broken into their home, shot his mother, and then fled.
Deputy Chief David Agee said, “The child initially made up a scenario that detectives felt was not plausible.
“After conducting an investigation, Sheriff’s Detectives were able to conclude that the victim’s 12-year-old son accidentally fired a gun, killing his mother.
“After further questioning, the boy eventually modified his account.
Agee said that “the child eventually gave an accurate description of what happened.”
The shooting was inadvertent, according to evidence at the scene, and the offense will be dealt with by the Family Court system. The youngster will continue to live with the family because they have been cooperative throughout the process.
According to Birmingham Real-Time News, the father of the boy is a police officer with the Birmingham Police Department and was on duty when the incident took place.
