Minneapolis teen pleads guilty to murder of 5-year-old

| No Comments

A Minneapolis teen plead guilty Friday to the shooting of a 5-year-old boy. He was one of two suspects, according to the Star Tribune.

Stephon Shannon, 17, and Julian Anderson, 15, stood outside of the victim's house in August 2012 and shot inside the residency. Their intent was to kill somebody in the house, but they didn't mean for it to be a child, reported the Pioneer Press.

Defense attorney David DeSmidt says that Shannon was a part of the "Skitz Squad," named after a 16-year-old boy who was murdered in September 2011 and whose case has not been solved.

DeSmidt asked shannon if his intent was to kill, but not a child. Shannon's response was a quiet "yes."
