PEOPLE confirms through online records that Docquen Jovo Watkins has been formally charged with second degree murder.
Despite being charged, no information on Watkins was available Tuesday.
Police claim Watkins called the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office at his Pontiac residence on Thursday.
According to Oakland Press, Watkins reportedly told police that he and his 10-year-old friend Rory Teasley had gotten into an argument.
The argument reportedly started when the two were playing Overwatch, a popular team-based shooter game.
Watkins told police Teasley was asleep, the press reports, but when MPs arrived, the 28-year-old man on the couch was unresponsive.
Police said Teasley was not breathing and officers took him to a nearby hospital where medical officers pronounced him dead.
Watkins is being held without bond.
It was unclear if he had a lawyer on Tuesday.
“We see far too often across the country these days that people resort to violence over trivial and insignificant disagreements,” Sheriff Michael Bouchard said, according to the newspaper. “There is never a reason why force of disagreement is acceptable. Those who do so will be held accountable.”
Teasley’s death marks Oakland County’s first murder of the year.
