    A 13-year-old boy has fatally shot his 11-year-old brother in suburban Cleveland in what police are describing as an apparent "premeditated act."

    Officers were called to a home around 9:30 p.m. Monday, Streetsboro police said. The 11-year-old died at a hospital.

    Police say the 13-year-old has been charged with aggravated murder in Portage County Juvenile Court. Police say the gun used in the slaying was stolen from his grandfather's home.

    Police have not said what prompted the teen to shoot his brother.

    Streetsboro is roughly 30 miles (48 kilometers) southeast of downtown Cleveland.
