Relative of slain toddler arrested in killing of suspect
BELLEFONTAINE NEIGHBORS (AP) - Authorities said a relative of a slain 3-year-old was arrested on suspicion of killing the teenager accused of accidentally shooting the toddler.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that police said 17-year-old Kameron Harvey was shot Oct. 4 while riding his bike in Bellefontaine Neighbors, a St. Louis County city.
Harvey had been on house arrest while waiting to be tried on a manslaughter charge in the December 2015 death of young Xavier "Zae" Robinson. Harvey was a friend of the child's older brother. Authorities said the shooting happened while Harvey was playing with the laser site on a handgun inside a home.
Harvey was 15 at the time, but the manslaughter case was being prosecuted in adult court. The toddler's relative is one of two 17-year-olds arrested in Harvey's killing.
