CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - A southern New Jersey teen has denied charges stemming from the death of an 8-year-old girl who was struck by a stray bullet during a shooting in Camden last summer.

NJ.com reports (https://bit.ly/2jwOazJ ) 18-year-old Tyhan Brown pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder on Monday in Camden County Superior Court. Brown’s mother and girlfriend have also denied charges tied to the investigation of Gabby Carter’s death.

Prosecutors say Brown’s intended target in the Aug. 24 shooting was Amir Dixon. Carter was caught in the crossfire when she attempted to enter the same doorway as Dixon at the same time.

Carter was shot in the head and died two days later.

Brown fled to Tennessee but was extradited back to New Jersey in October. He’s currently being held on $1.5 million bail.
