17-Year-Old Charged In Thanksgiving Shooting

TOLEDO, Ohio - A 17-year-old teen has been charged with murder in the Thanksgiving shooting death of a three-year-old boy.

WTOL 11 reports the teen from Detroit was charged Friday in the death of 3-year-old Malachi Barnes. He plead not guilty to a charge of complicity to murder. Prosecutors say they will file to charge the teen as an adult. 

Malachi was riding with his father Anthony Barnes in a car on I-75 Thanksgiving night when another car pulled alongside the Barnes' car and fired multiple shots. Malachi was hit and later died at Mercy St. Vincent's Hospital.
