18-year old Raequan Dupree Rouse was found shot to death in Wilmington, North Carolina.  Police have now arrested 16-year old Dominique Olivia Gibbs for the shooting, which was apparently gang-related.

From an article:
Rouse was shot in the 600 block of North 10th Street in an act of violence Wilmington Police Department Chief Ralph Evangelous said "clearly was a gang issue." 
A bystander who witnessed the shooting and called 911 said about 15 shots were exchanged. 
The 18-year-old arrived at New Hanover Regional Medical Center in a private vehicle and was pronounced dead a short time later. 
Rouse had been shot 12 times, according to the 911 recording. 
When police officers arrived on the scene, according to the 911 records, they found shell casings in front of 605 S. 10th St. and a blood trail "all the way down the sidewalk and around the corner" of Campbell Street.
The article does not say how Dominique got her gun or ammo.

Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
