Gun is missing; prosecutor says adults could be charged
The Butler County prosecutor is warning that serious charges could be filed against adults who may be withholding information in the shooting death of a 4-year-old boy.
Robin Piper says several individuals may be held responsible for the lack of cooperation with Hamilton police. The boy, Delacey Smith, died Wednesday after police said his 7-year-old brother shot him while playing with a handgun he thought was a toy. Police say the gun was not at the boys' home where the shooting happened, and it had not been found as of yesterday.
