Teen, 12, admits to shooting his mum dead in their US home after originally informing authorities that an intruder killed her

After first insisting that an intruder killed his mother in their US home, a 12-year-old boy has admitted to accidently shooting his Nigerian mother.

After midnight on August 6, Ayobiyi Cook, a 29-year-old registered nurse known to her friends as “Yo-Yo,” was discovered dead in the family’s Forestdale, Alabama home in the 2400 block of Freemont Avenue.

Her son had originally told police that an intruder had entered their house, shot his mother and then ran away.

“The child originally fabricated a story that detectives determined was not possible,” Deputy Chief David Agee said.

“After investigation, Sheriff’s Detectives were able to determine that the victim’s 12-year-old son unintentionally discharged a firearm striking his mother causing her death.

“After more probing, the boy finally changed his story.

“The child eventually gave a true account of what happened,” Agee said.

“Evidence on the scene supports that the shooting was unintentional and the offense will be addressed through the Family Court system. The family has been cooperative throughout the process and the child will remain with them.”
