Efforts to get the 14-year-old Oakland boy to turn himself in have finally paid off.

Mario Toliver Jr. turned himself in at the Oakland Police Department. He was accompanied by his family and attorney Adante Pointer, who works with Burris.

“He is not a hardened criminal,” [attorney John] Burris said, adding that he had been talking to the boy for days trying to get him to surrender.

Burris also said the teen is scared, remorseful and emotional.

The teen had been wanted by police on suspicion of shooting and killing his sister, Justice Toliver (pictured), on Thursday.
