Police: Boy, 15, charged in shooting after Cavaliers parade

CLEVELAND (AP) — Police say a teenager suspected in the shooting of a 13-year-old girl following Cleveland Cavaliers’ championship parade last week has been taken into custody.

An arrest warrant had been issued Monday for the 15-year-old boy. WJW-TV reports police say he was taken into custody on Tuesday.

Clevleand.com reports Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County prosecutors say the boy was charged with felonious assault and improper discharge of a firearm on a public roadway, among other offenses.

Officers broke up a fight between a group of teenagers last Wednesday. Shots rang out shortly afterward. The teenage girl was shot in both legs.

The suspect led police on a foot chase and told officers he fired two shots at a crowd of people after the parade.

Police are working to identify a second suspect.
