11-year-old New Yorker fatally kicked cancer-stricken stepdad in the stomach

A young boy, whose name is yet to be revealed, may have killed his stepfather, George Szkred, with a kick to the stomach.

The incident took place on Thursday, December 6, 2018, in an apartment building in the Bronx, New York City, and left neighbors quite rattled.

As reported by ABC 6, the boy and the man got into an argument, which was when the child violently kicked the 51-year-old.

The case is still being investigated by the New York Police Department so little is known about the incident, but it is believed that Szkred was a cancer patient.

The 11-year-old boy was taken into police custody under suspicion that his kick killed his stepfather, whose health status was already quite frail.

THE REASON BEHIND THE FIGHT

Emergency Services were called to the apartment and paramedics found Szkred unresponsive on the couch. Unfortunately, the man passed away during the ambulance ride to the hospital.

It isn't known what the two were fighting about but the mother, whose name hasn't been publicly revealed, opened the door of her apartment in NYCHA's Baily Houses with tears in her eyes.

POSSIBLE TROUBLED CHILD

Her son isn't expected to face any charges but he was questioned by the police, having been allowed to go home later that night.

Neighbors reportedly have mixed feelings about the child; while some describe him as 'quiet,' others consider him to be 'disrespectful,' but nothing else has come up about his demeanor.

For now, the possibility of the boy killing the stepfather is still on the table but more will be revealed once the medical examiner shares more details regarding the 51-year-old's cause of death.

ANOTHER UNFORTUNATE DEATH

Back in July, another family accident took over the news when a two-year-old girl from Muscoy, California, was accidentally killed by her four-year-old cousin.

It was reported that the boy found his grandfather's gun and, believing it was a toy, shot his cousin in the chest. The man, Cesar Lopez, was arrested for child endangerment and possession of a firearm.
