Sentencing of 12 year old who accidentally shot friend has been delayed

Posted: Updated:
SANILAC COUNTY (WJRT) - (04/29/14) - The sentencing of a 12-year-old boy, who accidentally shot and killed his friend last November in Sanilac County, was delayed on Tuesday.

The Sanilac County prosecutor says a competency hearing will be held Thursday.

Police say 11-year-old Tyler Dunn was shot and killed with a rifle during a sleepover.

There were no adults at the Marlette Township home at the time.

The 12-year-old pleaded guilty in juvenile court to reckless discharge of a firearm causing death - but the competency hearing should have been held before the plea was accepted.
