UNIONTOWN (AP) — A Southwestern Pennsylvania man accused of shooting his 12-year-old brother had the charges against him dismissed after the boy refused to testify against him.


Charges against 19-year-old David Brooks including aggravated assault and reckless endangerment were dismissed at a preliminary hearing Tuesday before a Fayette County magistrate.


Uniontown police say Brooks told them he accidentally shot his brother, Timothy, in the hand and abdomen as he removed the gun from his pocket in September. Investigators say the older brother then threw the gun into a creek.
