HARBORCREEK, Pa. (AP) – A 14-year-old Pennsylvania boy has been charged with fatally shooting his grandmother during an argument over school.
Hunter Riley Reeser, of Harborcreek Township, is jailed without bond on charges including criminal homicide and first-degree murder.
State police say he shot 60-year-old Sandra Orton in the head, then called her husband Tuesday claiming he found her wounded.
Police say Reeser later called 911 and acknowledged shooting her.
Police say Reeser told them he shot her because he didn’t want to go to an unspecified school meeting.
In Pennsylvania, children must be charged as adults in murder or homicide cases, though defense attorneys can later try to move the charges to juvenile court.
Erie County prosecutors say they plan to oppose that.
Reeser doesn’t yet have an attorney to comment on the charges.
