COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) – Court records say a suspect in the killing of a 13-year-old boy shot the victim while playing with guns in a mid-Missouri home.

The Columbia Missourian reports that prosecutors upgraded the charge against 19-year-old Cameron White on Monday from involuntary manslaughter to second-degree murder. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.

The probable cause statement says White told a woman that Dajion Harris asked White to shoot him as they were getting high and playing with guns Saturday night in Columbia. White says he shot Harris in the head and then fled when the victim’s family came into the room.

The statement says that when officers located White in a nearby apartment, he told them to take him to prison and that he was never going to see his family again.
