Tevin Lee, 18, has been charged in the death of Shamiya Adams, who was hit by a stray bullet while sleeping over with friends. 

Chicago police have formally arrested and charged an 18-year-old man in connection with the death of Shamiya Adams, the 11-year-old who was killed by a stray bullet while she was playing at a slumber party, New York’s Daily News reports.

The suspect, Tevin Lee, reportedly was looking for revenge in some sort of dispute involving two 14-year-old boys, police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said, according to the news site. One of the teens was beaten up by a group of other young teens. That boy in turn told his older brother, and Lee eventually heard of the situation and started tracking down a gang member he thought was involved.

When Lee reportedly saw the man he was looking for, the cops say, he fired at least four shots. One bullet went through a window opening in the house where Shamiya sat with her friends around an imaginary campfire, hitting the 11-year-old in her head and killing her.

“We have two 14-year-olds fighting, and someone introduces a gun into a fistfight, and we now have another child murder,” McCarthy told ABC 7.

Lee was charged with one count of murder, one count of felony murder and one count of aggravated discharge of a firearm, the news station notes.
