4-Year-Old Dead After Brother Throws Him From Building

A schizophrenic Brooklyn man threw his four-year-old brother off their seven-story building’s roof to his death early Saturday. He then walked up to a police car and confessed, police sources said.

“I just killed my brother. I took my brother up to the roof and I threw him off,” Shawn Smith, 20, allegedly told officers before leading them to where his brother’s body was found, NBC NY reported. He had no prior criminal record or history of violence, police sources noted.

But he recently told his family that voices in his head were ordering him to do “something bad” though he didn’t, or couldn’t, warn anyone what that might be, police sources said.
