Dad of NJ boy who fatally shot pal is indicted

MAYS LANDING, N.J. (AP) - The father of a young New Jersey boy who fatally shot his 6-year-old playmate has been indicted on six counts of child endangerment.

An Ocean County grand jury returned the indictment against Anthony Senatore of Toms River on Wednesday.

Authorities say the 33-year-old Senatore had multiple unsecured weapons in his home. They say his 4-year-old son got a .22 caliber rifle and fired a single shot that struck his 6-year-old neighbor, Brandon Holt, in the head, on April 8.

Holt died the next day.

Senatore was arrested several weeks after the shooting. His lawyer did not immediately return a call seeking comment Wednesday afternoon.

Although the shooting occurred in Ocean County, Atlantic County is handling the matter because Senatore has relatives who have worked in law enforcement in Ocean County.
