Pittsburgh Police arrested a 14-year-old boy for fatally shooting his grandmother, all because he didn’t want to go to school, officials announced.

Authorities charged Hunter R. Reeser as an adult with first-degree murder after he shot his 60-year-old grandmother, Sandra Orton, on Tuesday with a .22-caliber rifle, according to WTAE.

Following the incident, he called her husband and told him that he found her injured. However, he later decided to call 911 and confess to the killing.

Police officers discovered the victim dead in her car from a bullet wound to the head.

The teen admitted to detectives that he did not want to go to a meeting at school.

In the state of Pennsylvania, minors must be initially charged as adults in homicide or murder cases. However, defense attorneys can later attempt to transfer the charges to juvenile court. Prosecutors announced that they intend to oppose that transfer.

According to ABC7, Reeser is currently be held without bond and has yet to hire an attorney.
