shooting

A 16-year-old Gulfport, MS teenager admits he shot his 6-year-old brother to scare him so he could play a video game on his cell phone.

Albert Deonta Craft III claims he was trying to scare little Zaylan Sparkman when he pointed a gun at the child and shot him.

The shooting happened at the family home on Sabine Street on Friday.

Albert and Zaylan were in the laundry room of the home. Zaylan was sitting on a washing machine playing a game on his cell phone when Albert aimed a .38 pistol at the boy.

Albert admits he knew the gun was loaded with 2 rounds but he didn’t think the bullets were close to the hammer.

He told police he was trying to provoke a reaction from the child.

He pulled the trigger once and nothing happened. Then he pulled the trigger again and the weapon discharged, striking Zaylan in the abdomen.

Albert frantically gathered his brother in his arms and ran to a next door neighbor’s house, pleading for help.

Paramedics rushed Zaylan to a hospital where he died Friday evening.

Officers arriving on the scene heard Albert tell his mother he killed his brother.

Albert will be arraigned on manslaughter charges next Wednesday, according to the Daily Mail UK. He faces 2-20 years in prison if convicted.

    So he pointed a loaded gun at his six year old brother and shot it twice. How is this an accident? He deserves life. He meant to kill his own brother. The devil is real.

  • On the radar….

    Yeah, that was deliberate. Sandra, you reminding everyone how jacked up the black community is with these posts?

  • Luv Pitties

    He knew the gun was loaded, he broke rule 1. Secondly they were sitting down playing a game on the phone what was the need to scare his baby to that extent.

    You pulled the trigger the first time nothing happened but did it again and claim you didn’t know the bullets would be that close to the hammer?! Where the hell else would they be Albert?? I don’t believe you I believe this was premeditated and deliberate.

    This was completely senseless that was a baby! Nothing rose to the level of shooting this child. If you didn’t want to share your game all you had to do was take your phone.

    Oh, I’m not mad. I’m glad you do. I get tired of people yelling racism but don’t take a look at the craziness in their backyard.

  • bella28498 .

    sooooo most likely they have different fathers, perhaps the 6 year old dad was a better father (because he had a cell phone) (jealously) The 16 year old male shouldn’t have been baby sitting his brother PERIOD!!!

  • nick c

    I also agree that its a problem when people have siblings this far apart in age.

  • On the radar….

    He was jealous of that little boy. Something ain’t right in the water.

  • Lisa daniels

    What f is with the damn kids, throwing hot boiling water while folks sleep, putting babies in freezers, and pull out guns and shooting 6year olds? I will pay these high ass $99 dollars a week to my child’s daycare if mean that she will be alive and well. F these cheap sitters, a d siblings.

  • stav

    We rarely agree, but that’s real!

  • nick c

    Let me guess the family going to pull the whole “the family been through enough” stunt to get the 16 year old off I seen it too many times with white families that kill each other and no one in family wants justice

  • Lisa daniels

    He committed armed robbery and murder. I hope they f up in jail.

  • Lisa daniels

    But these last few post be blacks acting crazy as hell.

  • stav

    Daycare isn’t safe either!

  • bella28498 .

    yes! That is true as well. I have a colleague that will not let the half siblings babysit at all, because there is a lot of jealously amongst half siblings. Like you said as well if they are too far apart in age they usually dont get along as well.

  • Luv Pitties

    I want justice and don’t want to see dual friggin Go fund me accounts for the services and bond

  • Lisa daniels

    For $99 a week this one is. And my child got hands

  • On the radar….

    That lil mofo would rot in jail if he was my child.

  • Lisa daniels

    Exactly. When is a dirty cop when you need one? Why they did bust a cap in his ass when they heard say it.

  • bella28498 .

    I agree I told my husband when we have a child, not putting them in daycare. I will have to quit my job and he agreed.

  • Luv Pitties

    I don’t know but that would’ve been a lot for that mother to take on in one day.

  • Lisa daniels

    True, but after killing the baby, the 6 year old, he would have been dead to me anyway

  • Solo

    I started babysitting my siblings at the age of 12. There’s a 7 year age difference between me and my youngest sibling All of my friends looked after their younger siblings in the summer and this never occurred. . I don’t think that’s the problem. It’s that specific child.

  • Luv Pitties

    True I believe at some point once the emotions stop running high he will be once things settle, this was just pure evil.

  • Lisa daniels

    Just as as the evil heifer that throw water on the girl while she slept. I am all kinds sick now.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    This 16 year old psychopath is being charged with manslaughter. He needs to be charged with murder. The DA went with manslaughter because it’s easier to prove.

    If you ask me, this is a classic case of sibling rivalry. The boys have different last names and presumably, different fathers. The younger brother was playing a video game on his own cellphone and older boy wanted to play with it. That suggests the 16 year old didn’t have his own cellphone or his phone isn’t as nice as his younger brother’s phone.

    The fact that he pulled the trigger more than once, is a clear indication that he intended to kill his half-brother. He probably secured that weapon with the sole purpose of murdering that child.

  • Luv Pitties

    Oh yea that mother should’ve eyed for an that heifer

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    What’s wrong? Let’s start with broken homes, crappy and non-existing parenting, social media, and the constant exposure to sadistic, sociopathic (c)rap “music.”

  • Lisa daniels

    This was armed robbery and murder

  • Torae

    He would not have my support. Sorry but I would have to disown him. At 16 he knew exactly what he was doing and knew what the possible outcome would be. I would want justice.

  • Torae

    Daycare not really safe. A lot of young kids there not watching and mistreating kids as well. It’s hard to find people to trust with your kids.

  • stav

    No matter how much it cost doesn’t mean you can trust all people. Many of abuse cases, even deaths has occurred in daycares. If your child has hands and is capable of beating adults/offenders, maybe he doesn’t need daycare!

  • Lisa daniels

    I agree especially on the non-existing parents, I practically had to show my ass to get my parents to come my school and even then they still didn’t want to come when I was a kid. Eventually, I just stopped being the best student that was and did the bear minimum to pass. My parents didn’t care and came from a “two parent household.”

  • Lisa daniels

    I can’t quit my job, it just me and child.

  • Lisa daniels

    Tis true

  • bella28498 .

    Lmao ?

  • Lisa daniels

    She needs daycare cause I work and too young to be home alone per the law, so she knows how to defend herself.

  • bella28498 .

    In my field of work, I see these type of cases allllll day. I don’t know how old u are but in 2017 I wouldn’t let older and especially older half siblings ( especially males) watch the kids.

  • Lisa daniels

    I’m still trying find out how the mother did ??? nothing.

  • NicoleZee

    He needs life in prison with no chance of parole. Teenagers are VERY evil towards younger children. Any parent that leaves a teenager alone with a smaller child is just as guilty if anything happens to the baby. No way in hell. I wouldn’t even want teenagers around my child with adults present. Sad. I hope that little boy gets justice and rests in peace. Such a sick world we live in where parents don’t give two shits who comes around their kids. They need to charge the parents too. Dumb asses!

  • stav

    This story is about a gun, not kids fighting. Many of times in daycares the offenders are adults.

  • Luv Pitties

    Shock, it’s a lot going through her head right now. I’m assuming she wasn’t home at the moment and came home during the confusion

  • Lisa daniels

    What’s funny? That’s the truth, he robbed that little boy at gunpoint and then shoot him to cover it up.

  • bella28498 .

    Now the trifling mother can start from scratch and have a new set of mix match kids….I can almost best she was at a niqqa house or at the bar when this happened

  • NicoleZee

    Better yet, I would put him in his own grave after I got done with him. Sicko!

  • bella28498 .

    That’s why it’s funny because it’s the truth

  • Lisa daniels

    But she had to know that her child didn’t really like the other child because I don’t let child play with kids she doesn’t like nor I because I don’t got time for ? pop off.

  • NicoleZee

    Mine will never go. If I have to be broke, destitute, and homeless so be it. At least my child will be alive. I will never put him in daycare. It’s tougher trying to find someone who can watch your baby, but daycare and strangers are the worse! No way in holy hell!

  • Lisa daniels

    I know what the story is about ,genius. Obviously the 16 year was left to watch the 6 year old and this how the 6 year ended up dead.

  • Lisa daniels

    SMh

  • bella28498 .

    You gotta do what u gotta do, but I would think twice before having to put another child in daycare. These kids are exposed to sexual abuse, a lot of times the daycare owners allow people who don’t work there around the kids during business hours, and you just don’t know when a disgruntled parent who isn’t allowed to see there kid wanna come in shooting.

  • NicoleZee

    I was wondering about the large gap in age. What idiot has children a decade apart??? The f*ck??? My grandmother did that mess. It doesn’t make sense, siblings should grow up together. A teenager does not want to be bothered with a much younger child. Ridiculous. My brother and I were planned and two years apart. My son is almost 2, if I can’t give him a sibling within the next few years, he won’t get one. I’m getting too old for this shit!

  • Youshockedme

    Not gonna happen he’s black..

  • Allison G

    That f**king idiot is lying. Who shots at someone twice then call it an accident?why he pick up his brother and ran to the neighbors home instead of calling 911? His stupid a$$ wanted to play games on his brothers phone so bad but he couldn’t dial 911 on it. Manslaughter my a$$,that’s premeditated murder.

  • Lisa daniels

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Even if you do everything right, there’s no guarantee your child will be a winner. But if you intentionally F it up, the odds your child will be a loser, are dramatically increased.

  • NicoleZee

    Thank you! It makes no sense. But I do empathize with infertile couples because if you are trying to have a second baby for several years, when and if you finally get one, the first child will damn near be grown! I have fertility issues too, but I’m ready to just close up shop. My son is almost 2, no way in hell am I about to have a newborn with a half grown child. What in all the hell??? Naw! I’m 34, honestly I’m getting too old for a second baby anyway, plus I’m single, but everyone says my son needs a little sister! People think it’s selfish to have an only child :(.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Yes, he wanted that phone, but he really wanted to get rid of his brother.

  • bella28498 .

    Exactly!!!!! these trifling parents look at decade apart siblings as built in baby sitters while they run the street. A smart parent know u don’t allow waaaay older siblings especially male babysit but hey idk chit

  • Solo

    you’re entitled to your opinion based on your experience. I’m in my late 30s. I was a very responsible child and my mother used her judgement as to when and how long I babysat my siblings. My sister and I still don’t get along very well to this day but she comes to me when she hurt b/c I was her 2nd mother. We never physically fought without my parents present b/c we knew the repercussions. Not everyone can afford babysitters by such standards. There’s nothing wrong with it and the situation played out in homes in the cities, suburbs, and ghettos of America. I had a half sibling who babysat me maybe 3 times. No problems there. I was a military brat and have seen this my whole life, so I don’t see it as a major issue. It comes down to judgement and knowing the capabilities of your child. Also I come from a large extended family. Elder children have always been given the responsibility of looking after the young in my family. Now this isn’t to say that my parents would let anyone babysit me because if it wasn’t family, they weren’t watching us..

  • bella28498 .

    Ppl need to stfu I doubt your son gaf about having a little sister?

  • Solo

    however, I do agree with it comes to male babysitters.

  • Cali

    WTF does the ten year age gap have to do with the murder, dumbass? Please DO NOT breed again!

  • bella28498 .

    Riiiiight you are in your late 30’s this is a new day. This ain’t the 70’s and 80’s like I said
    In my field of work I see these type of case allllll day long. The good ole days are over. You can’t even compare your era to this era

  • Solo

    jI have 14 nieces and nephews up to the age of 26. As teens (3 of them still are) they babysit their younger siblings, including half-siblings. It’s a new day, but things haven’t changed that much. It depends on the children. And from what you describe b/c of your line of work, I have a feeling it’s b/c you deal with children from troubled homes or histories. I’m speaking in general for the average family/child. We’re not talking babsyitting siblings on a 40hour work schedule. I”m talking summers, after school, a couple hours while parents go to dinner.

  • stav

    Thanks for the compliment, however with that foolish statement regarding your child having hands, it didn’t seem as if you knew. Have a good night though!

  • bella28498 .

    You keep thinking majority of these families are like yours, and I’m here to tell you it’s not until years later adults are sitting behind my desk telling me about the incest that was going on in the families that was never discussed or no one know about. You will be surprised in your own family the skeletons that will fall out mannnnnny years later.

  • Solo

    I didn’t say the majority are like mine nor do I think that.. I said the average normal family/kid… ie: without disfunction, issues. Now I’m done. I thought this was a conversation about differing opinions but you obviously have your mind set and can’t see another perspective. I’m done. Have a great evening.

  • Solo

    skeletons? what does that have to do with older kids babysitting younger kids? wow? Just wow. sensitive much? lol. again, have a good night my dear.

  • bella28498 .

    I’m sorry I actually go to court everyday and hear the horror stories. On all levels dealing with children. I even hear uncles babysitting there nephews and molesting them sometimes infecting them with hiv. Sexual abuse and physical abuse amongst family members is more common than uncommon.

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    That’s really awful to say

  • Solo

    My point exactly — prior history of issues. I’m not trying to argue with you. I was saying that there is another perspective out there — that of normal, working families who do what they must– even in 2017 — and sometimes, that means siblings watching siblings. You can’t make a blanket statement and say all. That’s the point I was making. I’m not deluded. I work in the tv news business. I’m listening to scanners right now. I could probably match your stories of abuse with the things I’ve heard and seen. So I do respect your opinion but I was speaking up for others like me- whom you probably haven’t had experience with. like when you’re raised a military brat you see a lot and it’s more common that not in those communities, in 2 parent working households, in single parent households, etc– that siblings are babsysitters. I respected your opinion without being condescending and passive aggressive. Please respect mine or keep scrolling. In no way did I insult you or come at your sideways.

    Hi Auntie, I was being sarcastic toward the shooter, trying to carry the boy to the neighbor’s house like it was an accident. I’m so done. Stories like these really get me riled up. I lost someone close to me due to an “accidental” shooting. Playing with loaded guns but it’s an accident. SMDH.

  • dontgetblocked

    Don’t. It ruined my night. Just too much.

  • dontgetblocked

    I’m afraid of this generation. They’ve been exposed to too much violence.

  • dontgetblocked

    This generally happens when the first child was unplanned and the mother meets a man later (she may marry him…usually white women because most black men are afraid of marriage) and has another child to seal this new relationship. It can also happen when a woman has a child young and wants to have one late in her 30s before her eggs dry up or in a desperate attempt to lock up a man such as Evelyn Lozada. Not rare to see women with an 18 year old and a newborn. Why someone would want to spend 36 years raising children, I’ll never understand.

  • Malai

    GREAT analysis.. this is definitely a possibility!

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    This isn’t the first time he hurt that child and his mother isn’t going to tell the authorities about the other incidents, because she doesn’t want him to be charged with murder.

    A normal child doesn’t wake up one day and decide to murder their little brother. There is an escalation period. Evil has been rattling around in his skull for a long, long time.

  • NeverSurprised

    Of course you can point to cases of two- parent homes where some children turn out badly, but I’m talking about the bigger picture. Unless black WOMEN start to understand the statistical ramifications of trying to raise millions of boys ALONE, then we as a race, are doomed

    73% of black children are being raised by single mothers. This not only impacts the poverty rate, but more significantly, the absence of positive male role models in the home allows the boys to be influenced by negative males in their communities, hence the proliferation of guns. (A 16 year old who cavalierly waves a gun around in his home! Is he more or less likely to do this if he has a strong, responsible father living in the home with him? )

    MURDER IS THE #1CAUSE OF DEATH for black males aged 15 to 34. http://www.politifact.com/punditfact/statements/2014/aug/24/juan-williams/juan-williams-no-1-cause-death-african-americans-1/
    It is the #2 cause of death for black boys aged 1 to 4 — ONE YEAR OLDS!– and it is the #3 cause for black boys aged 5 to 14. These numbers do not apply to any group of children in this country except BLACK BOYS. For all other races, ACCIDENTS are the #1 cause of death for childrens and teens. Unless you believe that as a race we are inherently more violent and animalistic, you must ask yourself WHY our black males are kill their OWN children and teens at such a high rate. No fathers in America abandon their children at a rate of 73% except BLACK fathers.
    Even a freshman psychology course teaches the importance of father/son bonding. It is axiomatic that if you remove that bonding relationship negative results may occur. When we look at the violence that has become commonplace among young black males, to call the results of the loss of fathers “negative” is a huge understatement.

    We are a race in crisis. Sticking our collective heads in the sand and pretending otherwise will only make matters worse.

  • stav

    Knowing that the gun was loaded with 2 bullets, after the first pull of the trigger and nothing happened, the second pull makes it totally obvious he would pull that trigger until something did happen. May the punishment fit the crime.

    and why did a 16 year old need a gun to intimidate a 6 year old…into giving up a cell phone? He couldn’t just snatch the phone? He couldn’t just pull big brother rank?

  • Bdot

    He deserves more than 20 years maximum. He pulled the trigger once, and then pulled it again? I’d shoot his stupid ass and put him outta his misery.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    “Trying to teach him a lesson” …by pointing a loaded gun at him and pulling the trigger twice?

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    maybe some part of him, in aiming that gun at his baby brother, was also aiming at his mother and/or the younger boy’s father. teens can harbor a lot of rage when they feel they’re in an ‘unfair’ situation. nothing will bring this baby back, but I hope they can learn what was going on with this 16 y/o, and maybe prevent it from happening to another family.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    TWICE. smh…

  • Chuck

    Two kids who probably have different fathers, so the killer killed his brother because lil brother’s dad is around and mom shows lil brother more attention that the killer. I say to imprison the killer for life!

  • Chuck

    Because of bad parenting skills.

  • Nataliegaye

    Damn is all I can say here….Damn Damn Damn

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    WHO THE HECK teaches their sibling “a lesson” with a GUN??!!

    This world is a TRIP!!!

  • You Could Never

    We dont know what this young man was thinking. I dont think he was trying to kill him though. Says he was “trying to get a reaction”

  • You Could Never

    Who teaches their kids with one?

    A father in Indiana is facing five felonies after inadvertently shooting his 9-year-old daughter while he says he was teaching his three children not to play with guns, later telling a responding officer: “She’s dead, she’s dead. I thought it was empty.”

  • ShWa

    Ok go rot in jail dummy…

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    All I can say is if you view “getting a reaction” by pulling a KNOWN partially loaded gun trigger twice, I’m glad none of my family or children associate with you

  • Youngblood

    I feel bad 4 the mom she lost both her boys.And as a mother with a son I can only imagine because my son is a momma,s boy.Iam not going ask why because I already no.This sick world we live in is heavily influence by demonic things all around us.The choices we make can bring us great pain or great joy.

  • You Could Never

    You got all of that from the story? Godspeed

  • You Could Never

    I didnt say that. The story said that. “He told police he was trying to provoke a reaction from the child.” I am entitled to have my own thought process on the story. Oh and I dont want to know your family or your little ugly ass kids. To associate with them.

    Godspeed.

  • StoneColdLady

    Say what? The child was doing what children do, sitting down PLAYING a game! The older brother gets a gun that HE KNOWS has bullets in it and pulls the trigger TO GET a REACTION from a TWO year old, nothing happened so he does it again…Lpcl his behind up

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    yeah… THAT makes it ok. The veil of ignorance is strong today

  • Quitedeliteful

    He got a reaction alright and — dumbass is gonna get more ‘reaction’ than he can handle in the pokey.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    Trust… It wasn’t an offer to associate, more to rethink your apparent ability to reason on a situation.

  • You Could Never

    The child was not two. Not that it matters. He is no longer here on earth. Did you read? Reading is fundamental. I didnt say he SHOULDNT be locked up. I say lock his ass up and throw away the key bc at 16 he should have known better. However, one more time, he didnt think but a lapse in judgment does not malice MAKE. I indeed said he was stupid as hell.

    Godspeed.

  • You Could Never

    My reasoning is just fine.

    Godspeed.

  • EScrazy

    do these kids think the person they shoot comes back like in grand theft auto 5?They have no sense of compassion anymore they laugh at pain and misfortune. They think being poor from the hood is cool and being in jail is like a college degree. Girls look at credit card fraud and stripping before they hit 17

  • NeverSurprised

    Unfortunately, in poor neighborhoods across the country, teens casually walking around with guns is becoming the rule rather than the exception.

  • Renee26

    Try his dumb reckless azz as an adult

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    TOTAL.

  • StoneColdLady

    SIX AND I stand by what I type LOCK his behind up AFTER you beat his you know what! Try him for MURDER NOT MANSLAUGHTER, the SIX year old had NO way of defending himself against a loaded gun (I don’t care if it was 2 bullets) you pulled the trigger on that CHILD TWICE

  • NeverSurprised

    I doubt those factors had anything to do with it. He was a kid with a gun exercising the only kind of power he has ever known. A teen with a gun in his hand doesn’t think, he merely acts.

  • You Could Never

    One more time. Show me where I said he shouldnt be locked up?

  • You Could Never

    A teen with a gun in his hand doesn’t think, he merely acts.
    A teen with a gun in his hand doesn’t think, he merely acts.
    A teen with a gun in his hand doesn’t think, he merely acts.

    My goodness. Finally. Someone else who gets it

  • Renee26

    Lack of supervision and guidance

  • MsVAllDay

    Why does this young man have access to a gun??? So many questions here.

  • Quitedeliteful

    So… you know the gun is loaded and yet you point it at a baby and pull the trigger. You get lucky because the gun does not unload yet you pull the trigger again??? This wasn’t poor choice this was premeditated malice. He didn’t go looking for a boy his own age to play this dangerous game with he got the gun and decided to use an innocent baby as target practice. 20 years for him and all the dycks his black arse got waiting for him in the pokey.

  • ThisHarryHere

    Two jobs. Pay attention. One was an evening job.

  • Dowoop

    Yup…This was no accident. He is 16. You know the damage a gun can do.

  • EMILY POST

    People now a days are slow and have extremely bad parents…. A 16 and a 6 year old.. Now should a 16 year old have to do any of that at all to control a 6 year old.. Where are the parents?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    When I worked a a nurse in a juvenile detention center in 2005, more than half of the boys were there for molesting their little brothers. I was shocked.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Right???And who even thinks about pointing a pistol at their baby brother???

  • i troll it like i see it

    I wonder why he really shot his baby brother, what a terrible young man he is.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I wonder why he really shot his baby brother, what a terrible young man he is.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    He knew the gun was loaded and he pulled the trigger twice. That is not the behavior of a logical rational thinking person. That is the behavior of a heartless sociopath. I agree he should be locked away for life.

  • country57

    So am I. Heard of this going on with the little sisters. Wow, this is so sad.

  • Jennifer

    This is so sad. Real guns? Damn, what happened to cap guns, water guns, and BB guns? A 16-year-old should be having the best super soaker party w his 6-year-old brother during the hot Mississippi summer!

  • NeverSurprised

    ???

  • CaliGONECRAZY

    Let me tell you my fiance got custody of his then 16 year old son at the time. He wasn’t even with us for a week when he shot my 7 year old daughter with a high powered rifle bb gun. He told her to run and hit her in the bottom of her foot. She had to get surgery to get it out. He ran away for 2 days and was begging his family to buy him a bus ticket. The boy is a Narcissist and skilled manipulator. Needless to say he doesn’t reside with us anymore.

  • disqus_FW7pCIigCY

    In an instant a mother lost 2 sons…SMH!

  • chris

    Sick

  • chris

    Sad story..

    He probably listens to hop up and watches power.

  • chris

    Much less easy access to a gun they need to be charged for that at least.

  • chris

    Don’t worry about what others say do what’s best for you and your family they gonna talk about you either way.

  • V Dubb

    You are so right!!! I’m just tired of stupidity!!

  • Tausha T. W.

    What was he doing with the gun to begin with? This was no accident.

  • Candance

    Quit playing with guns!!!!!! All these accidents, how do you forgive one kid for killing the other… I pray Jesus holds them together during this tragedy. A mom and her sons bond is so amazing especially when they are little guys, I can imagine what that momma is going through. God bless!

  • Renee Bee

    OMG! I’m so glad your baby girl is okay now. So sorry she had to go through pain.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    OMG, I’m so sorry your baby (and you) experienced this. my God!

  • Renee Bee

    NAN!!! Stop reading my mind! Ugh!

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    yeah, nothing rational about this behavior. I shudder to think what impact he could have had on society at large, if he had the nerve to point (and discharge) a loaded weapon at a small child, who happened to be his own blood, smh

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!
  • Renee Bee

    Okay! Okay! I still e-luv you. ((Hugs))
    I’m keeping prayed up. Goodness has to overcome this wicked world. Be blessed, Mystery Lady.

    you be blessed as well and be encouraged! we definitely have to strive to overcome evil with good (and not that I’m so good, but I do try to shun evil, LOL!)

  • Chuck

    Maybe, maybe not

  • Chuck

    “Probably” is the operative word, here.

  • CaliGONECRAZY

    Yes she was a little trooper! I was so nervous when they told me she would get anesthesia. I was so scared and terrified. But everything went well. I’m just glad he didn’t do worse. The doctors were so upset he did that, because a couple of years ago a little boy shot his little sister with a bb gun in her chest. And she died from it. It was right before Christmas.

    The parent(s)??!! On second thought, you already know. Ijs

  • OP2

    Not at the age of 16. At that age, it’s a different mentality where they understand gangbangin’, r@ping, assualting, etc.

  • Mrs. ??????????

    Very sad, rip little boy.

  • EMILY POST

    Wow ? I am not shocked…
    It’s just amazing how they are sooooo silent about molestation and perversion and sexual assault and abuse. The parents should go to jail too.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    Lord Jesus! I’m glad you and your baby were spared. (RIP to the little one who was shot in the chest… heartbreaking, I tell ya, smh)

  • C Mack

    So unnecessary.

    So many questions..why did he have a loaded gun, why would he think its ok to shoot at a toddler, what is in the water now days?

    THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • dontgetblocked

    Somebody had to say it.

  • dontgetblocked

    No it’s not. It’s selfish to have a bunch of kids you can’t take care of.

  • Dr.Rue

    Kids are insane nowadays. He shot at a baby!? His baby brother? I blame him and the parents.

  • Nessa

    Who doesn’t have a gun living in a sketchy area?

  • Felicia Kelley

    So, you pull the trigger once and nothing happens, so, you pull it again!! WOW!!!

  • Felicia Kelley

    Over a video game!!!!

  • NicoleZee

    So true. My heart breaks every time I hear about a child dying. It’s horrific. I have a little boy, I couldn’t imagine something happening to him. Most of these shitty daycares need to be shut down. They hire careless people that just want to make a dollar that neglect and abuse kids. I can tell you one thing, there is not a force on this earth that would keep my foot out of the ass of anyone that harms my child.

  • 4RGSpot

    The parent(s) should be also serving 20 years in the cell right next to him.
    When are they going to hold these parents accountable for shish like this? May that poor baby rest peacefully.

  • NicoleZee

    And your disrespect is necessary because…….???? I was not speaking to you so I am unsure of where your anger is directed or coming from. You need professional help and medication. You do NOT have children decades apart and you do NOT entrust a teenager to care for a small child. I grew up differently. My brother is two years younger, so my parents had common sense. You are officially BLOCKED! Have a blessed weekend.

  • NicoleZee

    Exactly. That was my point. It is irresponsible to rely on teenagers today to be babysitters. Who does that??? Hell, you can’t trust any idiot with your kids but you definitely don’t leave them with someone that is still a child themselves. Geeesh! When I was growing up, every teenage girl babysat to earn money, but damn, I never tried or plotted to harm anyone’s child no matter how bad they were! It really takes an evil and sick person to harm an innocent child. I will never understand that. Sick and sad.

  • ThisHarryHere

    You seem to be a tad bit angry and just a slosh bit bitter. Who did you wrong?

    dayum……I am glad your baby is ok.

  • CaliGONECRAZY

    Thank you

  • Arrissasso

    So he shot him by accident by just trying to scare him but pulled the trigger twice? He should know better this is horrific and he should be haunted by this for the rest of his life. How do you aim and fire twice a real live gun at your baby brother?

  • Arrissasso

    Power sucks! It’s so stupid I lost interest in the 3rd episode.

  • Arrissasso

    Question…,Do you think he was molesting him and quieted him up because gave threaten to tell?
