The other day, we wrote about the shooting death of a 5 year old Minneapolis boy. Nizzel George was sleeping in his house when a bullet came through the walls of the house and shot him to death. Now 2 teen aged boys have been arrested in the death. From the article:
Two teenage boys have been arrested in the shooting death of 5-year-old Nizzel George, the north Minneapolis boy who was fatally struck by a bullet fired from outside into his home, police said Friday.
One of the suspects was booked on suspicion of murder and the other for weapons possession.
The boy was shot once in the back Tuesday morning at the home in the 4500 block of Bryant Avenue N.
Nizzel George, age 5
The arrests were made Thursday evening in Brooklyn Center, according to police spokesman Sgt. Steve McCarty. Charges could come as soon as Monday.           
Every gun in the hands of a child or teen must first pass through the hands of an adult.
