LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- An uncle is accused of shooting and killing his nephew on Saturday night, Dec. 7, in the 800 block of Cherry Drive in Jeffersonville, Ind.

Michael Medcalfe had just been staying with his uncle Jeremy Swank for about two weeks before he was shot.  And just a little while ago, police tell us Swank is now charged with murder.

When police cars and ambulances surrounded a Cherry Drive home Saturday night, neighbors didn't know what to think.

They soon learned Medcalfe, one of at least six people who lived inside, had been shot in the head and died two days later at the hospital. Investigators say Swank was the shooter.

It’s unclear what led to the shooting.

But in the meantime, since Medcalfe died, the charge has been upgraded to murder.
