A man charged earlier this year with felony child endangerment after his 4-year-old boy fatally shot his 2-year-old son using the dad’s gun was arrested in Pittsburg on Wednesday on suspicion of drug and weapons possession. Police found several guns and some narcotics at the School Street home of 28-year-old Eddie Carr, who had been freed on bail for charges stemming from the December 2010 accidental shooting, Lt. Ron Raman said.
Police considered Carr a person of interest in multiple investigations, prompting the search of his two known homes in Pittsburg and on Harris Drive in Antioch, Raman said. Though Carr was free on bail at the time of his arrest, he has again been jailed with bail set at $150,000. This summer, a judge ordered the felon to stand trial on felony child endangerment charges stemming from his toddler’s death. Police said the fatal shooting of Jyonn Carr took place when the boy’s brother accessed a gun that Carr had loaded and placed in a drawer. The two boys had been in the care of their grandmother and were in a nearby bedroom when they discovered the gun newly purchased by their mother, Laqinda Modique, who was also arrested.
Raman said police and the Contra Costa District Attorney’s Office will request a higher bail amount for Carr.
