A Laramie teenager has been charged with manslaughter after shooting a 13-year-old Tuesday morning.
According to a news release posted to the Laramie Police Department Facebook page, officers responded to the report of a shooting around 1:30 a.m. on Tuesday.
The 13-year-old male victim was transported to Ivinson Memorial Hospital and later to a Denver hospital, where he later died.
As a result of the investigation, a 14-year-old male was arrested and charged with manslaughter. The boy is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
Since this is a juvenile matter, court processes and sentencing will vary.
