In US, 12-year-old boy accidentally kills His mother from Nigeria, Ayobiyi Cook
According to CBSNews, the youngster initially told the police a lie about what transpired.
“The child originally fabricated a story that detectives determined was not possible. The child eventually gave a true account of what happened,” The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office in Alabama said in a statement.
Investigators say the evidence supports that the shooting was unintentional.
Cook’s husband, Djuan Cook, in a Facebook post said the deceased was known as “Yo” or “YoYo.”
