OAKLAND, Calif. Top news coming in to an overcast San Francisco today is about the laundry shooter.

ABC 7 Local in San Francisco says that, in Oakland, police report that the 14-year-old boy who was accused of fatally shooting his sister, aged 17, because of a laundry altercation, has now turned him in to police.

The news station reports that, according to police, Mario Toliver Jr.:

"was accompanied by family members when he walked into the Oakland Police Department and turned himself in to authorities on Wednesday."

Toliver shot his sister in the apartment that they stayed in with their grandmother.

That apartment is situated on Franklin Street in the Chinatown neighborhood of Oakland.

"This is a terrible tragedy. Who hasn't wanted to kill a sibling in a moment of anger? But most of us would never do it. And, in fact, if anyone else tried to hurt them, we'd be right there defending them like crazy," says Alice Marshall in San Francisco.

The two had a fight over the sister bleaching the brother's laundry and in retaliation, Mario shot his sister.
