A Brooklyn man charged with shooting a 3-year-old neighbor boy in the head is denying the allegations.
Akeem Bernard's bail was set Sunday at $75,000. The toddler, Tharell Edward, is hospitalized in stable condition.
Tharell's mother was out and an acquaintance was watching him when he was shot in his Brooklyn apartment around 3 a.m. Saturday.
The Brooklyn district attorney's office says Bernard showed a gun to the mother's roommate Friday night and put it in a shoebox. A court complaint says the roommate heard a gunshot and found the boy bleeding in Bernard's arms.
