He said that he wanted to play cops and robbers and so, retrieved one of the two loaded 9mm handguns their father kept in an unlocked console in the couch in the living room.

He reportedly said that his brother wasn't listening to him, and was lying on the couch watching videos on a cellphone instead.

According to Polcha, Brayden admitted that "he pressed the muzzle of the gun to the back left side of the victim's head and squeezed the trigger."

"He related he did this because the victim was not complying with his commands while playing cops and robbers.
