Boy, 15, charged in fatal shooting of 10-year-old relative


  A 15-year-old Detroit boy has been charged as an adult with second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of a 10-year-old relative in an apartment that police say was being used like a “flophouse” by a group of young people. The teen was arraigned Tuesday. Orran Baugh of Detroit was shot once in the chest Wednesday in the Warren apartment, just north of Detroit. He later died at a hospital. Police say eight youths -- ages 13 to 17 -- were interviewed by investigators as witnesses. The Detroit Free Press reports that Warren Police Commissioner Bill Dwyer described their relationships to one another as cousins, and that they were using the apartment “like a flophouse.”
