SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - A teenager accused of opening fire in a crowded Syracuse park on Independence Day last summer has been charged with murder.

Seventeen-year-old Shaquez Collins was indicted Thursday for “depraved indifference to human life” and causing “a grave risk of death.” The charge indicates he did not intentionally kill a 20-year-old man who died days later after being shot in the head during the attack.

Collins originally faced assault and weapons charges in the shooting, which injured three people as families celebrated the holiday.

Collins is being held in the Onondaga County Jail. It couldn’t immediately be determined if he has an attorney.
