BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (AP) — Authorities in central Illinois have charged a 17-year-old boy from Normal in the fatal shooting of a Bloomington teenager earlier this month.
Sixteen-year-old Trae Massey was shot at his home on Jan. 21 and died a short time later at OSF St. Joseph Medical Center. McLean County Coroner Beth Kimmerling says he was shot once in the chest.
Police on Wednesday said the 17-year-old boy is jailed on preliminary charges of involuntary manslaughter, possession of a stolen firearm and obstruction of justice.
Officers responding to a report of a loud argument on Jan. 21 were told that witnesses saw several people carrying a shooting victim to a car. Massey's relatives had taken him in a private car to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead in the emergency room.
