Montgomery County Prosecutor Mat Heck, Jr., said an 18-year-old has been indicted in connection with the shooting death of his brother.
Gregory Lamar Patrick-Brooks, 18, is accused of shooting his brother, 17-year-old Jajuan Olden, Jr. The shooting happened on July 26. He was charged with reckless homicide.
Officers in Dayton said they were called to an apartment in the 600 block of Rockford Ave. The call came in as a report that a person had been shot. Officers arrived and found Olden, Jr. with a gunshot to the chest.
According to investigators, it was determined through witness statements that Patrick-Brooks was playing carelessly with a gun when his brother was shot.
Prosecutors said the charge includes a 3-year firearm specification.
