BALTIMORE (AP) - Federal prosecutors say they’ve charged a man in the 2014 shooting death of a 3-year-old Baltimore girl.

U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein announced the charges in McKenzie Elliott’s death Wednesday at a news conference on a drug conspiracy indictment targeting the “Old York Money Gang.”

Rosenstein says the indictment charges seven men with conspiracy to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute controlled substances. One man, 28-year-old Terrell Plummer, is also charged in McKenzie’s shooting death.

Prosecutors say Plummer fired shots during a turf battle and one missed its target, but killed the girl. Plummer is charged with use of a firearm resulting in death during and in relation to a drug trafficking crime. If convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of death or life in prison.
