Delaware state police don't yet know why a gun went off in Magnolia, firing a shot that killed a 10-year-old boy.

Troopers are searching Friday for 18-year-old Obadiah Miller, two days after 10-year-old Lionel Butler was shot to death.

A group of 10- and 11-year-old children were playing on Nascar Lane on Wednesday when State Police spokesman Sgt. Paul Shavack says Miller pulled out a gun. One shot was fired, but Shavack says police don't yet know whether Miller intended to fire.

Butler was hit in the chest and died.

Police have warrants charging Miller with first-degree murder and weapons offenses in the boy's death.

Anyone with information about Miller's whereabouts is asked to call 911. Police say he should be considered armed and dangerous.
