In a statement, Robert Ebberup asks people not to rush to judgment against Anthony Senatore of Toms River.

Senatore was indicted Wednesday on six counts of child endangerment.

Authorities say Senatore had multiple unsecured weapons in his home.

Officials say Senatore’s 4-year-old son got a .22 caliber rifle and fired a single shot that struck his 6-year-old neighbor, Brandon Holt, in the head, in April. Holt died the next day.

Although the shooting occurred in Ocean County, Atlantic County is handling the case because Senatore has relatives who have worked in law enforcement in Ocean County.
