ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — A 30-year-old South Beloit man has been arrested in connection with a Friday night shooting that left a 10-year-old boy dead.

According to the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office, Jose M. Sandovaltenorio was arrested and charged with child endangerment resulting in death and possession of a firearm without a FOID.

The victim was found suffering from a gunshot wound in the 200 block of Townline Avenue by sheriff’s deputies around 8:00 p.m. Friday night.

He was transported to a local hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries, according to police.

According to court documents, Sandovaltenorio and his wife left two children, 9 and 10, alone in the house to attend a festival in Beloit.

Police did not elaborate on how the boy suffered the fatal gunshot wound.

Sandovaltenorio told investigators that he kept two pistols and some ammunition under a board in his bedroom.

Two pistols were found near where the boy was shot. Police also said that there were several realistic-looking toy guns found near where the real guns were stored.

According to police, there was no lock on the bedroom door and the board used to conceal the pistols was easily removed.

Sandovaltenorio was booked in the Winnebago County Jail, where he is currently held without bond.
