MILWAUKEE (KNOE 8 News/AP) - A lawyer for a 76-year-old Milwaukee man on trial for gunning down his young neighbor says his client suffers from a mental illness.

John Henry Spooner's own surveillance camera video shows him confronting 13-year-old Darius Simmons, pointing a gun at him and shooting him in the chest.

The teen stumbles and runs away and Spooner fires a second shot that misses him.

Spooner had accused the teen of breaking into his home.
