YODER, Colo. (KRDO) -- The young boy who was shot last week in Yoder and then rushed to the hospital has died from his injuries, the family reported on Monday.
Roman Krutitskiy, 6, was identified as the child who died, according to a Gofundme page set up by the child's uncle as well as the El Paso County Sheriff's Office. The cause and manner of death will be determined by the Coroner's Office.
Nikolay Krutitskiy, the boy's father, was arrested last week on charges of assault, child abuse, prohibited use of a weapon, violation of a restraining order, and reckless endangerment.
Monday, the sheriff's office added two more charges against Krutitskiy: first-degree murder and child abuse resulting in death.
It's still not clear what led to the shooting, and the court documents related to the charges have been sealed to the public. The El Paso County Sheriff's Office said Monday the shooting happened at the family's home in the 7700 block of Edison Road in Yoder.
Jim Sifford lives across the street from the Yoder Post Office where Roman was taken after he was shot.
"I heard the sirens and got out and looked and that was when the sheriff's office responded to the call," Sifford said. "It's sad that the world is going in that direction, more and more violence, domestic violence."
Roman's family sent KRDO a statement:
"Our family is heart broken over the death of Roman. A boy so full of life and joy. The circumstances of his death are beyond tragic, no child should ever know such pain. If you suspect that someone you know has been the victim of abuse or domestic violence please speak up, help out and let them know they have someone they can turn to. You could be the difference between a life of possibilities and a life lost."
Savannah Ragins also lives in Yoder. She works at the local cafe and is a mother herself.
"It breaks my heart because he had such a long fulfilling life ahead of him," Ragins said. "He could've done anything."
Roman's family is using the hashtag #RIPRoma to remember the young boy. Roma was his nickname.
