CHICAGO – A third suspect has been charged in the slaying of a 14-year-old Chicago girl who police say was shot in the back by another 14-year-old during an argument over a boy.
The girl accused of pulling the trigger and a 17-year-old boy accused of hiding the gun used in the shooting were charged earlier in the week.
On Wednesday, authorities announced first-degree murder charges against the girl’s uncle, 25-year-old Donnell Flora. He’s accused of providing the handgun and accompanying the suspected shooter to the fight.
He was to appear in bond court Wednesday. It was not clear if he already had a lawyer.
The two others have not been identified because they’re charged as juveniles.
Fourteen-year-old Endia Martin was shot Monday in the Back of the Yards neighborhood.
