A medical examiner has ruled homicide as the cause of death for 16-year-old Brandon Kuiper, who was shot in the face March 6 in the basement of a Tallmadge Township home.Naturally there's not even a mention of the lawful owner of the gun. My opinion is any time a kid gets ahold of a gun some adult should go to jail and lose his gun rights forever.
Kuiper died of a gunshot wound, Dr. David Start determined in an autopsy Monday, March 12.
Police responded around 9:15 p.m. March 6 and found Kuiper with critical head injuries.
Ottawa Sheriff's Lt. Mark Bennett said a group of six teens had been in the basement that night. At some point, there was talk of a game of "Russian roulette."
Kuiper was shot in the head with a .22 revolver allegedly by Richard Usher. There is no evidence of animosity between the two, though Usher now faces felony charges of manslaughter and using a weapon in the commission of a crime.
