GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Greensboro police are still looking for Murad Anthony Weaver, 22, who is accused of shooting and killing his 5-year-old brother Caleb Harris Pearson Friday night at a home on Waugh Street.

"I just want you to come so I hold you and just tell you I forgive,” said their mother Demetrius Harris, as she broke down crying. "I know you're hurting as well as I. I forgive you. We all forgive you, we just hurt."

Harris is still grieving the loss of one son while hoping to find another.

Friday night, her son Weaver shot his gun in the air after an argument at a home on Waugh Street. Next to him, his little brother Caleb and his mother.

"He was just good kid. A very good kid,” Harris said about her youngest son. "He shot to the right. If he would've known his brother was outside he would've never shot that gun. Never, in a million years."

The bullet struck Caleb and he died. Weaver left right after he fired the shot.

Harris says it was likely later that he found out he killed his little brother and she hasn't heard from Weaver since.

"He’s hurting. I mean he's hurting. He’s dying inside,” she said.

However, Harris says she knows one thing for certain.

“Armed and dangerous, that he is not. He’s not even armed anymore. So this is to the Greensboro Police Department, if you find my son before I find him, do not touch my son. Do not shoot my son, because I will blame you,” she said.

Caleb’s funeral is set for Thursday. His family says they are raising money to make that possible.
