The boy and his father, 53-year-old Arkete Davis, were taken into custody.
The father, 53-year-old Arkete Davis, and his son were taken into custody after the boy found the weapon in Davis’ car and allegedly shot the unidentified boy.
According to a Facebook post by the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office, the son went to the car to get cigarettes from the vehicle and found the gun inside. Once he saw the gun, he left the vehicle and allegedly “bragged that his father had a gun.”
He ended up shooting the victim and then ran into an apartment. The sheriff’s office stated it found the gun in a nearby trashcan and that it suspects Davis attempted to throw it away.
After deputies appeared on the scene and found the boy bleeding from his head and neck, they attempted CPR. When the Sacramento Metro Fire Department arrived, personnel took the victim to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Davis’s son was taken to the Sacramento County Youth Detention Facility and charged with murder. Davis, who was arrested and then transported to the Sacramento County Main Jail., was as charged with multiple felony firearm-related charges, as well as child endangerment and accessory after the fact.
According to KCRA, family members identified the victim as Keith “KJ” Frierson. A GoFundMe, “In memory of Keith KJ Frierson,” was set up by his godmother, Nina Trepagnier.
