A 17-year-old male has been arrested and charged with aggravated unlawful assault with a weapon in connection to the accidental, fatal shooting of a 13-year-old boy in Chicago on Wednesday, authorities said.

The assistant state’s attorney denied additional charges against the unnamed 17-year-old after they determined the incident to be an accident, the Chicago Police Department told Fox News.
