MIAMI (AP) — Three teenagers are accused of fatally shooting a 15-year-old boy who police say was the wrong target in a gang-related shooting at a Halloween party near Miami.

Miami-Dade police spokesman Angel Rodriguez said in a news release that 18-year-old Marcos Gonzalez, 18-year-old Matthew Hernandez and a 17-year-old teen were arrested Tuesday. They’re all charged with second-degree murder in the death of Angel Cueli on Saturday.

The Miami Herald reports Gonzalez told investigators he drove the car to the party while knowing that his two passengers had weapons and they planned to use them to target someone at the party.

Witnesses said Cueli was talking to friends outside the home when a car pulled up, someone stepped out and fired toward the crowed.

Lawyers weren’t listed on jail records.
