Who is Christopher Broad?
Christopher Broad, 16, was found with at least one gunshot wound inside a Belleview home on Sunday. He was rushed to a local hospital where he died of his injuries, police said.
A subsequent investigation revealed that Broad and another boy, 17-year-old Joshua Vining, were taking turns “shooting at each other while wearing a vest that contained some sort of bulletproof vest,” the Belleview Police Department said in a statement.
A third teen, Colton Whitler, was present at the time of the tragedy and allegedly gave officers a false account of what happened, authorities said.
“Vining shot Broad while he was wearing the vest and was beaten,” the statement said.
Vining and Whitler were arrested in connection with Broad’s death on Thursday and will be charged as adults, police said.
Vining is being charged with aggravated manslaughter of a child by a firearm, while Whitler is charged with providing false information to law enforcement.
