Teens charged in shooting that killed 16-year-old girl

TOLEDO, Ohio -- Authorities in Ohio said a pair of 17-year-old boys will be in Juvenile Court next week to face charges in the shooting death of a 16-year-old girl.

Toledo police said a social media dispute led to a fight and the shooting Monday that killed Alexia Carey. Her grandfather was grazed by a bullet.

A prosecutor told The Blade newspaper that investigators think several people fired shots, and it's not clear whether either of the two teens who have been charged fired the fatal shot.

The teens are scheduled to appear in court Tuesday to face the juvenile equivalent of felonious assault charges. Prosecutors said charges against more people could be filed.

Carey was a student at Northwood High School near Toledo.
