On Tuesday the boy's father unveiled Curtis Cannon WISN TV that Javonn accidentally shot the boy before rushing Dakari to the hospital and leaving him there.

One of the two brothers is said to be the boy's father, although in his interrogation Curtis refused to confirm what or to provide more information about the circumstances that preceded the shooting.

& # 39; Maybe they were terrified, & # 39; Curtis theorized. & # 39; Maybe they took him to the hospital because they realized they were there, and they didn't want the boy to be in pain or suffering.

& # 39; I don't produce any killers & # 39 ;, he added.

The police were informed of the situation when the hospital staff called to report that the two men who had dropped off the sick child had disappeared from the site.

& # 39; It was an unintentional shooting, & # 39; continued Curtis Cannon. & # 39; My children have not intentionally shot a 5-year-old child. It was an unintentional shooting. & # 39;

According to a family member on Twitter, the boy was shot in the leg, with the bullet ricocheting in his stomach.

Kenosha Police Capt. Thomas Hamm said an investigation is ongoing. The two men remain in pre-trial detention in pre-trial detention pending a preliminary appearance in court on Thursday.

It will then be up to the Kenosha County district attorney whether he sues Dakari & # 39; s death against the two men or not.

The police still have to confirm how the boy found the gun and whether investigators found the firearm on the spot.
