Tyreke Owens, 17, screamed for help while his 11-year-old brother Tahj Owens lay on their lawn with a bullet in his head, that’s according to one neighbor FOX40 spoke to on Friday. She asked us to hide her identity because she said she’s traumatized.
The neighbor said she heard a gunshot around 5 p.m. on Thursday. When she heard the boy screaming she ran to help and performed CPR on Tahj.
The Stockton Police Department said when officers arrived and rolled the boy’s body over, they found gun underneath him. However, they have not said whether or not it was the same weapon used in this incident. Investigators do believe this shooting is not a drive-by and are working to determine if the cause is accidental or self-inflicted.
As for who owns the gun -- that remains a mystery.
The investigation is still active and police will not release who owns the weapon. The department added that nothing is concrete when it comes to potential charges.
