Lawyer: Dad charged in Toms River shooting cooperating (5/15/13)

TOMS RIVER - The lawyer for the man whose 4-year-old son shot and killed a 6-year-old playmate in Toms River says his client is cooperating.

Robert Ebberup held a news conference this morning in which he criticized the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office for arresting his client in front of his family while they ate dinner.

The lawyer says Anthony Senatore would have voluntarily turned himself in to face charges of child endangerment and enabling access by a minor to a loaded firearm. He said Senatore and his family “are deeply sorrowed over the death of Brandon Holt.”

Authorities say Senatore's son took a loaded .22-caliber rifle from a bedroom on April 8 and fatally wounded neighbor Brandon Holt while they were playing outdoors.

Officials say four shotguns were found close to ammunition and accessible to Senatore's three young children in their Toms River home.
