AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Authorities in Texas say a 10-year-old boy has confessed to an unsolved 2022 killing, telling investigators that he shot a man he did not know while the victim slept. The Gonzales County Sheriff’s Office said the boy has been evaluated at a psychiatric hospital but cannot be charged with the crime because he was too young at the time of the killing. The boy is being held in juvenile detention for threatening a student in another incident. Investigators say the boy described specific details of the shooting of Brandon Rasberry, who was found two days later.
