CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - A second teenager has been charged with murder in the shooting death of a 13-year-old girl at a North Carolina mall.

WBTV reported a 15-year-old was taken into custody Friday and charged with first-degree murder and felony rioting in the shooting at the Concord Mills mall in suburban Charlotte. Police said the teen is an acquaintance of 18-year-old Dontae Milton-Black, who was arrested earlier in the week.

Avenanna Propst, 13, was killed and two juveniles were injured a week ago after a fight broke out at the mall. Concord police have said Propst and the injured teens were not the intended targets of the gunfire.

The TV station reported family and friends of Avenanna gathered Friday night for a candlelight vigil in her honor. Funeral services were planned Saturday.
