Man faces charges in 5-year-old boy’s shooting death

Regional News

YORK, Pa. (AP) — A man who authorities say was caring for a young boy who apparently shot himself with a gun inside an SUV is now facing several counts in the youth’s death.

York police say 27-year-old city resident Adrian Moye is charged with felony drug possession, child endangerment, and weapons possession. It’s not known if he’s retained an attorney.

The counts stem from the death of 5-year-old Elias Dowlatram on Tuesday. Authorities say the York boy died from a gunshot wound to the head, but they haven’t determined if the death was a homicide or an accident.

Another child who was also in the SUV was not hurt.
