FENTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A 16-year-old boy has been charged with murder in Genesee County in the death of a friend who was shot in the back of the head.

The victim, 18-year-old Brady Morris, had been staying at the home of Abdu Akl in Fenton Township. Morris was killed Saturday night while other members of the Akl family were in the house.

Akl was charged Friday with murder, possessing a stolen firearm and two more crimes. He was arrested when deputies responded to a 911 call.

Defense attorney Frank Manley says Morris‘ death was an accident involving teens who were “fooling around.”

Sheriff Robert Pickell says Akl and Morris occasionally put guns to their heads, something known as Russian roulette, but they weren’t playing at the time.
