A man charged in connection with the shooting death of his 8-year-old brother was released on his own recognizance Friday.

Prosecutors say 22-year-old Brandon Upshaw buried a .45-caliber handgun in the backyard of his family home in suburban Dolton.

On Tuesday, authorities say, his 11-year-old brother found the gun and accidently shot and killed 8-year-old Kyree Davis.

Upshaw faces several charges, including child endangerment and unlawful possession of a firearm.

He was released on an I-bond.
