NEW YORK - The NYPD has arrested a 15-year-old boy in connection with the fatal shooting of a 17-year-old girl in Queens last week.
Authorities say Shantasia Obrian was found unconscious and unresponsive with a gunshot wound to the back just after 5 p.m. on Friday afternoon.
EMS rushed her to Jamaica Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
In the aftermath of the shooting, police say they took two people of interest into custody.
On Sunday afternoon, the NYPD announced that a 15-year-old was charged with manslaughter, second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, and tampering with physical evidence.
The name of the suspect is being withheld due to his age.
