BROOKLYN, Ohio (AP) — The mother of a six-year-old boy who was shot and killed in an Ohio hotel room has been charged with his murder, authorities said Monday.

The shooting occurred around 6:30 a.m. Saturday in the Cleveland suburb of Brooklyn and was reported about 30 minutes later by Daneicha Bringht, 30, of Parma. She initially told police that someone had shot her son, Kaamir, in the head and stomach and she had suffered a hand wound, but she eventually admitted shooting her son, authorities said.
