Fatal shooting of Maine 1-year-old started with argument over T-shirt, state police say

Court documents reveal new details about a shooting in Wells on Saturday that left a boy dead and two men injured. Andrew Huber Young, 19, is charged with murder in connection with the death of his 22-month-old niece, Octavia Huber Young. An affidavit written by a detective with the Maine State Police major crimes unit released Monday indicates that Andrew Huber Young walked into the Wells Police Department shortly after the shooting and told a dispatcher, “I (expletive ) got up and accidentally shot my (expletive).” family”. Huber Young told the dispatcher that the weapon used was located in his car. According to the affidavit, a search warrant was executed on the vehicle and police recovered a handgun in the trunk. Shell casings were later found inside the home where the Crediford Road shooting occurred, investigators said. The document says state police detectives interviewed Huber Young at the Wells police station. Huber Young allegedly told detectives that he and his brother Ethan, Octavia’s father, were arguing at the house over a T-shirt that belonged to Andrew but that Ethan was wearing. According to the affidavit, Andrew, his mother Candace Huber, his father Mark Evans Young, his brother Ethan Huber Young and Ethan’s daughter Octavia were residing in the Crediford Road home at the time of the shooting. Andrew allegedly told investigators the argument escalated and he was told to leave the house before attending a Sea Dogs game with his girlfriend. During the game, the document says, he continued to text Ethan. Andrew said his brother Ethan said things to him over text about destroying his property and trashing his hamster cage. Investigators claimed that a destroyed hamster cage was later located in Andrew’s bedroom. According to the document, Andrew returned from the game with a gun that he told investigators he stole from his father. At the house, Andrew told investigators he could see his mother holding Ethan before she shot his brother through the front door. “Andrew said that he had aimed at Ethan’s chest before shooting, but stated that he did not intend to kill Ethan. He claimed that he wanted Ethan’s respect,” the document says. Andrew’s girlfriend told investigators that, according to the document, he told her during their earlier argument that Ethan had a knife and that her father was holding it. The document says Candance Huber, Andrew’s mother, took Octavia, Mark Evans Young and Ethan Huber Young to the emergency room at York Hospital in Wells. Mark Evans Young was shot in the face; however, his injuries were not life-threatening, according to investigators. Ethan Huber Young was shot in the left shoulder, the affidavit says. Ethan was holding Octavia when Andrew was at the door with the gun, according to police. Octavia was taken to Maine Medical Center in Portland, where she died of her injuries. An autopsy determined that Octavia died of a single gunshot wound to her left arm and her chest. Andrew Huber Young is currently being held in the York County Jail without bond. As of Monday afternoon, it was unclear when he will first appear in court.
