JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A 12-year-old Jacksonville boy is facing manslaughter charges after he shot a girl in the side of the head with a shotgun, a new report reveals.
An arrest warrant says Tyron Calhoun was playfully arguing with 12-year-old Ra'Mya Eunice during a sleepover at a home on Willow Branch Avenue April 30.
Tyron, who was 11 at the time, grabbed a shotgun that was hidden beneath the house. He brought it inside and playfully pointed the gun at everyone in the room, according to the report.
Witnesses told police that he pointed the shotgun at Ra'Mya and said, "Say I won't."
Someone in the room replied, "You won't" and Tyron shot Ra'Mya in the head, the warrant says.
She was taken to the hospital, where she died May 25.
The report says Tyron fled the house after shooting the girl. He was questioned by police and a warrant for his arrest was filed Oct. 17.
He is charged with manslaughter. Right now, Tyron is not being charged as an adult, which is why Action News Jax is not showing his mugshot.
