Fifteen-year-old Julian Kijuan Lamar Anderson, also known as Funny Mo, has been certified as an adult in the shooting death case of Nizzel George, the 5-year-old who was killed by a bullet fired into a north Minneapolis house as he slept on a couch in June. He and Stephon Shannon, 17, have been charged with felony murder, WCCO reports.
The teens were arrested a few days after the shooting.
Investigators said the shooting stemmed from an ongoing battle between two North Side gangs: the Skitz Squad and the Y.N.T., the Star Tribune reports.
The Pioneer Press says investigators have described it more as tension between two households.
