JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - A 15-year-old boy was shot by another teenager in Jackson on Friday.

Jackson Police Department says 15-year-old Cincere Robinson shot 15-year-old Kenkalius Howard in the side on Prosperity Street.

According to JPD, Robinson is charged with aggravated assault.

Robinson told authorities that he reached for Howard’s gun inside the pocket of his hoodie to shoot his cousin, Allen Southwell, for trying to discipline him because his mother did not want him to leave the house.

JPD says Robinson confessed to trying to shoot Southwell because he was bigger than him.
