COLUMBUS, Ohio – Prosecutors have filed a motion to prosecute a 16-year-old boy as an adult in the fatal shooting of his 14-year-old friend.

This article replaces an earlier version and contains updated information.

The high school freshman is scheduled to be in juvenile court in Columbus next week to face a delinquency count of murder in the Monday shooting of Terrico Henry.

Henry, who police initially said was 15, was shot in the stomach in the basement of the 16-year-old boy’s home on E. 5th Avenue. He died later at a hospital.

Police said the boys were in the basement with several others. Another 16-year-old boy has been charged with tampering with evidence. Police say he concealed a handgun and fled when officers arrived.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that friends of the boys say they believe the shooting was accidental.
