    FL - Tedra King, 13, shot by brother after hugging him, Florida City, 25 Apr 2017

    [MS], whose life has been marred by gun violence and who was featured as part of a series of stories earlier this year on youth surviving gun violence by Miami Herald news partner WLRN, called police after the shooting and said he had accidentally shot his sister.

    Police charged him with aggravated manslaughter of a child and possession of a weapon during the commission of a felony. The charge does not assume intent, police said.

    [...]

    The WLRN story, which ran in February, explained how a week before last Christmas, [MS] was in a car in front of his home when gunfire broke out. He was shot in the leg. His friend was shot in the head and survived. Earlier last year, [MS’s] younger brother Martwan [redacted], 15, was shot four times while playing outside his apartment.

    The bullet that hit Martwan’s spine left him paralyzed from the waist down.

    Another juvenile, this one a 14-year-old boy, has also been detained in connection with the case after cops say he provided the firearm to [redacted]. That boy was taken into custody for an outstanding delinquency warrant.

    The parents of a 13-year-old girl who was shot and killed by her 17-year-old stepbrother in Florida City are now fighting to retain custody of their nine other children, but a judge ruled they will be staying with other family members for the time being.

    The brother hasn't been charged as an adult at this point, although the DA is working on building a case against him as an adult. He turned 17 the day of the shooting.
