A 17-year-old has been charged with the March shooting death of a girl in Englewood.

The teen was arrested Wednesday morning after the State Attorney’s Office found probable cause and issued a warrant.

He is charged with manslaughter with a firearm, a first-degree felony, and possession of a firearm by a minor, a first-degree misdemeanor.

Investigators say the shooting happened March 31 at a home on Euler Avenue. Deputies learned the weapon was accidentally discharged by the teen, who knew the 16-year-old victim but was not related to her.
