CHICAGO --  A 17-year-old boy is charged after a teen girl was killed while the two of them were playing with a gun.

Police found Tracy Davis, 14, in the 700 block of North Homan Avenue in East Garfield Park with a gunshot wound to the head Wednesday afternoon. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

They say the boy fled the scene after the gun went off, but he later turned himself in to police. He is charged with involuntary manslaughter and is scheduled to appear for a hearing at the Leighton Criminal Court Building on Monday.
