Police announced today the deadly shooting of a northwest Indiana teenager was part of a gang initiation.
Kevin Brown, Joshua Addison; Anthony Addison Jr. and Matthew Knight are charged with murder and criminal gang activity.
They are accused of killing 14-year-old Depree Mims March 27th.
The boy was with his family in the living room of their Merrillville home when bullets flew through the window last week.
Police say six shots were fired and one of them struck Depree in the head.
Detectives say the victim was a good boy with no gang ties, but a gang member seeking retaliation for a robbery thought the robber lived in the house.
