16-year old New Jersey boy arrested for shooting and killing man and injuring baby

A 16-year old boy has surrendered after shooting and killing a man in Atlantic City and injuring a baby with a ricochet bullet.

From an article:

Atlantic County prosecutors say the 16-year-old Atlantic City boy faces several charges, including murder. He was being held at a youth detention center, and it was not clear Saturday whether he has retained lawyer. 
The youth, whose name was not released due to his age, is charged in the July 29 shooting death of 25-year-old Sedrick Lindo, who was shot while sitting on a porch outside the Carver Hall apartments in Atlantic City. 
A 3-month-old baby suffered undisclosed injuries when he was hit in the chest by what was believed to be shrapnel from a ricocheted bullet.

The article did not say how the boy got his gun.

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