An Alabama 14-year-old who is accused of fatally shooting his teen brother had a “hit list” of other family members he wanted to kill and made threats about shooting up a school, authorities said Wednesday.


The teenager, who was not identified by law enforcement, killed the 17-year-old, who had been missing since Monday, at their home in Monticello, the Pike County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement Wednesday.


The teen confessed to kiling his brother during a Tuesday interview with Sheriff Russell Thomas.


“He stated his brother got up and staggered out of the residence and out the back door, where he then fell at the bottom of the steps. He dragged him about 60 yards to the back of the property,” the sheriff’s office said.
