STREETSBORO, Ohio (AP) -- Police reports indicate that a 13-year-old boy accused of fatally shooting his 11-year-old brother had expressed a desire to hurt himself days before the shooting and was taken in for an evaluation.

The shooting happened Monday in Streetsboro. Police describe it as a "premeditated act" but have not said what led up to it.

The teen has been charged with aggravated murder. Cleveland.com reports he was evaluated at a behavioral health center four days before the shooting, but details of the evaluation were not available.

Police say the teen used a gun he stole from his grandfather's home. A family friend was babysitting the boys at the time.
