GRANGER, Ind., — The 12-year-old boy from Granger, Indiana, charged with shooting his Indiana state trooper father in February has pleaded guilty.

The boy was sentenced Tuesday in juvenile court, and will be sent to a secure residential mental health facility for treatment, said the South Bend Tribune.

Court documents say the boy used his father’s service weapon to shoot his father because the boy was upset his parents took away his video games. 

The boy will be monitored by the court until it’s decided he can be released.
