The father says his family is trying to heal, and his son is in counseling. But he says he wanted to talk publicly about the case to let victims of sex crimes know they shouldn't be afraid to come forward.

Investigators have not revealed any details about the circumstances surrounding the shooting, but family members said they're confident that no foul play was involved.

"He demonstrated how to load and unload the gun and then he handed it to Fayaadh and told him to do the same thing and it accidentally went off. He was clearly inexperienced with even touching a gun," Woods, 23, said. "My baby sister was also there. She said they everyone started screaming and hollering when it happened."

"To hand a gun to a kid and just run through a quick show-and-tell is probably the single most reckless thing I've ever heard in my entire life. He eventually left them to their own devices with the loaded gun while he went to the bathroom," Johnson told ABC News.

Fayaadh has been charged with third-degree murder in his brother's death, but Johnson said he is seeking to have him fully exonerated and his father charged instead.

"If you set into motion a series of events that are reckless and likely to cause death, that's enough to charge a person with murder," Johnson said. "I've spoken with the DA's office and I wouldn't be surprised if they charged him with third-degree murder, and they'll probably hold him without bail."

Fayaadh was released on $125,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday. He was able to attend his brother's funeral, but the family said he's weighed with the guilt and barely speaking.

"This young man will have to go through life with a black cloud over him. He's going to need therapy for years and years to come," Johnson said. "Imagine what graduation is going to be like for this kid when they get to his brother's name."

Family members said the twins were "like the same person" and had never spent a night without each other. Their lives were all about their brotherhood, academics and football, the family said.

John Davidson, assistant principal and head football coach for Mastery Charter School Lenfest Campus, where the brothers were both seniors, said the loss had shaken the school community. He described the brothers as "scholar athletes" who were fielding college offers from several schools.

"They always stood together in times of battle. They loved each other dearly and they were always loyal," Davidson said. "These were loving brothers. They were significant in our football program, they were significant in our school and they were typical high school young men."

Davidson said the brothers had attended the charter school since seventh grade and were Philadelphia all-stars and Suhail was a three-time All-Public League player and also a member of the school's track team.

The school hosted a balloon-releasing ceremony for Suhail at Penn's Landing, the waterfront park where the school is scheduled to hold its senior graduation later this year. The school is also planning to present the teen's mother with a trophy and jersey in the near future, according to Davidson.

He said he was encouraged by the outpouring of love for Suhail at his funeral last week.

"It was truly a powerful sight. You had two lines that went around the corner at his viewing. It was a sea of people out there to pay their respects to the family," Davidson said. "It was a heartfelt display from the city of Philadelphia for this young man."
