Who is O’Sheonia Hodges? (Mother charged in shooting death of 2-year-old boy) Biography, Wiki
Minnesota authorities have charged three people in connection with the shooting death of a two-year-old, who was apparently shot last week by his 3-year-old brother, the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office said Friday.
The boy’s mother, 20-year-old O’Sheonia Hodges, has been charged with second-degree manslaughter. The victim’s grandmother, 57-year-old Sherrillyn Mosley, and Hodges’ boyfriend, 20-year-old Keyshawn Cosey-Gray, have been charged with aiding an offender.
Meanwhile, the defendants told police that they believed a person they described as “BD” should be responsible for the shooting. Hodges finally gave a photo of “BD” and the police pinpointed his location. He said he did not go under the name “BD” and did not go to the apartment when he was shot.
The complaint said a search warrant had emerged for used gun cartridges and a 9mm pistol hidden in an Xfinity box. Additionally, social media posts indicated that Hodges owned a gun despite his rejection of detectives.
Detectives also looked through the contents of Hodges’ cell phone and found texts between him and Cosey-Gray discussing the police search for the apartment. Hodges wrote, “Baby, if they couldn’t find it.” Cosey-Gray said, “Me too baby, if it stayed with the same story, I did it.”
On Monday, Brooklyn Park Deputy Police Chief Mark Bruley said that as CrimeOnline previously reported, investigators believed the boy’s 3-year-old brother had grabbed his hands on a loaded pistol and fired the fire that killed his brother.
According to the complaint against him, Hodges finally admitted that after hearing the gunshot, he found his son on the ground with his brother on the ground and the gun on the ground. He insisted that the gun was stored on the top shelf of the cabinet, but said that after firing he hid the gun in the cabinet and took the empty cartridge box. He also admitted that he lied about “BD”.
Mosley also admitted that he lied in his initial statements, according to the complaint against him.
Hodges, Mosley and Cosey-Gray were arrested last week and charged with covering up details of the shooting.
