DES MOINES, Iowa - Police say a teen who was shot in the neck at a home over the weekend has died from his injuries.
The Des Moines Register reports that the shooting happened Saturday afternoon in a home just north of the city's downtown.
Police say 17-year-old Ishmael Muhammad was taken to an area hospital, where he later died. Police say people in the house initially told officers that Muhammad had shown up with a gunshot wound. But investigators determined that a small group of teens that included Muhammad were in a house when a handgun was accidentally fired and hit Muhammad.
A 16-year-old has been charged as a juvenile with involuntary manslaughter and other counts.
