Authorities say a 15-year-old boy has turned himself in after a 13-year-old boy was fatally shot in the face in Germantown while a group was playing with a gun.
Philadelphia police spokeswoman Officer Tanya Little said Thursday that the teen surrendered, but no charges have been filed in the Wednesday night shooting.
Police say the pair was with a group of “several juveniles” playing with a gun in the backyard of a home when the 13-year-old was shot.
He was pronounced dead at a Philadelphia hospital at 6 p.m.
Police say they’ve recovered the gun believed to be involved in the shooting. They’re continuing to investigate the incident.
