ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ohio — A 15-year-old was charged with reckless homicide for the fatal shooting of a 14-year-old in Arlington Heights.
In January 2022, police responded to a home on Olden Avenue for the report of a teen shot. When they arrived, they discovered a 14-year-old suffering from a gunshot wound. He was taken to UC Medical Center where he later died.
After a six month investigation, police identified the shooter as a 15-year-old boy.
According to a press release, the 15-year-old showed up at the 14-year-old's home with a gun that was stolen from a home in Colerain Township.
Investigators said the 15-year-old was "recklessly playing with the firearm at the time of the shooting."
The identities of those involved will likely not be released by police because they are juveniles.
