An 11-year-old boy has shot his state trooper father in the buttocks using his duty weapon after the dad seized his PlayStation and Xbox.
The violent child has been charged with shooting his father, Matt Makowski, after he and the boy’s mother decided to take away his video games.
According to the court records, the preteen used Indiana State Police officer’s .45-caliber handgun which he stole from his father’s locked police car.
As Makowski explained to the authorities, he always kept his gun locked away in his police car so that his children couldn’t come in touch with it.
The state trooper was shot on February 22 at around 11 pm. The paramedics found him in the master bedroom and took him to a local hospital where he is now “steadily improving.”
Before the authorities arrived at the family home, Matt’s wife was forced to hide because her son kept on walking around with his father’s gun and a taser even after the shooting.
When the police questioned the 11-year-old, the boy told them he is determined to play on Xbox, PlayStation, and a PC. As he said, “there would be a Part 2” if he doesn’t get what he wants.
The preteen also admitted to testing his father’s taser on their dog and said he planned on shooting his dad in the head.
According to the prosecutors who are pushing for the boy to be found guilty of a delinquent act of attempted murder, the preteen has a history of behavioral problems.
The 11-year-old is set to appear in the court on April 10.
