It happened March 9 at 12:30 p.m. when Detroit police responded to the report of a child being shot in the head in the 19400 block of Justine Street.

When police arrived, they found the 13-year-old had a gunshot wound to the right side of his forehead. He was transported to a local hospital for his injuries.

It’s alleged his 10-year-old cousin found an unsecured handgun in the home, that belonged to a relative of Williams, and shot the 13-year-old in the head.

“This case came to our office on the same day as another child shooting case, as a result of unsafe storage of a weapon,” said Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy. “Way too many innocent, very young children have easy access to these deadly weapons and this situation usually ends up with a seriously injured or fatally wounded child. I do not understand why the adults cannot safely store their firearms.”

Williams is expected back in court on May 6.
