WYNNE, AR (KAIT) - The Father of 19-year-old Marcus Warren is speaking out about his son, and how he feels Wynne police handled the accidental shooting Wednesday night.

Despite what has happened, Larry Warren is not only standing up for his son, but for the young man who accidentally shot and killed him. 

"If my son was here, he would want me to," said Warren. "That was his best friend."

Warren speaks out about how he feels officers handled the situation when they arrived on scene.

"A police officer has a protocol at an accident scene," said Warren. "They know the child's life is important first, other than some weed or some crap they found on the table."

Warren said he feels police seemed more concerned about what they found after being called to the shooting.

"My baby was over here dying, when they could have been rushing Emerson's down there," said Warren. "Then they had the audacity to put on the news that they immediately took him to the emergency room."

He wants people to remember his son as the young man that he was.

"He wasn't a bad kid," said Warren. "He never had a felony, he had never been to jail and he just finished his first year of college."

Warren is also standing up for 19-year-old Brandon Murray, who is now charged with man-slaughter.

Murray shares with us the only information he could at this time.

"He was a good dude," said Murray. "He was going to school and trying to get his life better and that's all I can really say."

After arriving on scene, Police found drugs in a child's room and a gun in the baby's bed. They arrested and charged 20-year-old Morgan Cook, the baby's mother, and 18-year-old Dominique Davis with simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms and possession of a controlled substance.
