The County Attorney has filed 2nd degree murder charges against an 18-year-old shooting suspect.
Police arrested the teen in connection to the deadly shooting that killed 19-year-old Naif Al-Kazahy on July 29th. The suspect was 17 at the time of the shooting.
Court records show the County Attorney has filed charges for murder in the 2nd degree, use of a weapon to commit a felony and possession of a machine gun/ short rifle/ shotgun.
The teen has not yet appeared in court but will face those charges when he has his first appearance, which still has not been set.
According to Police, Al-Kazahy was walking with his brother and friends at a house near 1328 S. Sumner Street when a argument broke out with a group of people sitting on the porch.
They say the incident escalated to a physical altercation and one man produced a shotgun.
Police say a single shot was fired, which struck Al-Kazahy in the chest.
Police say Al-Kazahy's brother and friends dragged him away from the scene to the 1400 block of Sumner street, where police were called.
Al-Kazahy was taken to the hospital and underwent surgery, but did not survive his injuries.
Due to the suspect's age and the fact that he has not been charged as an adult, 10-11 is not releasing his identity at this time.
