DETROIT (AP) — Authorities say a 15-year-old Detroit boy has been charged in connection with the fatal shooting of a boy of the same age.
Prosecutors say the teen has been charged with careless discharge of a weapon causing death. It stems from a shooting in the early morning hours of Sept. 15 in a home on the city's west side.
Officers found the victim lying unresponsive in a bedroom. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Prosecutors describe the boys as acquaintances.
At a Monday preliminary hearing, the teen was given a $7,000 personal bond.
