12-year-old arrested in deadly shooting of Brooklyn 14-year-old

A 12-year-old boy was arrested and charged in connection with the death of a 14-year-old boy who was shot and killed in Brooklyn Sunday morning.

The 12-year-old is charged with manslaughter - recklessly causing death, criminally negligent homicide, and criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree. 

According to police, the incident happened on Osborne Street in Brownsville at around 10:25 a.m. inside a NYCHA complex.

The 14-year-old, identified as Josai Guy, was at home when he was apparently shot in the chest inside of his 5th-floor apartment.

"I heard it. I did hear it," a neighbor told FOX 5 NY.

When officers responded to the scene, they found the victim with a gunshot wound to the chest.

EMS rushed the victim to Brookdale Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The neighbor said the gunshot woke them up from their sleep, and at first, they thought nothing of it.

"I just heard a loud sound. I didn’t think anything of it at first and then little while I heard walkie talkies and stuff which I thought was the housing and after that. I see the police, and everybody came," she shared.
