CLEVELAND - A 16-year-old boy has been charged with fatally shooting 14-year-old Lateavia Williams during a party Sunday in East Cleveland.
The juvenile suspect, whose name hasn't been released, is also facing three counts of felonious assault stemming from the deadly incident.
Police said an argument broke out an Elberon Avenue house before gunfire erupted outside. Williams was shot in the neck and died from her gunshot wound.
The police report notes the suspect was with two adults when he started shooting into the party crowd of more than 20 people.
Four others were injured during the shooting. One person remains in the hospital "in a chemically induced coma." Three others were treated and released.
It remains unclear if the gunman acted alone.
According to the Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court, the suspect was remanded to the detention center and no court date for the next hearing has been set.
