GREELEY, Colo. - An 18-year-old man accused of shooting his 11-year-old brother to death south of Greeley is being held on $30,000 bond.
Jordan Limas appeared in court Saturday for the death of Andre Limas. Jordan Limas was told he will be charged with criminally negligent homicide.
The boy was taken to a hospital in critical condition after Friday evening's shooting, and Weld County coroner's officials say he died about an hour later.
Sheriff's officials haven't offered further details of the arrest or how the shooting occurred.
"We have a pretty good picture of what happened but were not going to release any of those details yet," said Sgt. Tim Schwartz.
The boys' father, 42-year-old David Limas, says "this was just an ugly, stupid, terrible accident." He adds the family is rallying around his son, Jordan, and there is no "ill will" as a result of the shooting, which happened near Evans in unincorporated Weld County.
