GOLDSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Authorities in North Carolina have charged a 16-year-old with involuntary manslaughter in the shooting death of a former classmate.

WITN-TV in Greenville reports Goldsboro police say the teenager turned himself in on Tuesday after officers obtained a warrant. He’s charged in the death of 17-year-old Jahlil Teachey, who was shot in the face on Nov. 3 and died at a local hospital.

The teenager is jailed on a $10,002 secured bond. He was scheduled to appear in court Wednesday.

Police say their initial investigation showed Teachey may have been accidentally shot by a friend and two guns were found at the scene.

Wayne County Schools says the victim was a sophomore at Wayne Academy.
