Police: Michigan Teen Kills Himself After Accidentally Killing Another Teen

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) – Police say a distraught teenager in southwestern Michigan killed himself after fatally shooting another teen while playing with a gun.

The two shootings occurred Monday night in an alley in Kalamazoo, 150 miles northeast of Chicago.

A witness explained to police what happened. Police didn’t publicly disclose which victim was accidentally shot, but said there was no argument or altercation.

The 17-year-old victims were identified as Marsavious Frazier and Daquarion Hunter. Hunter graduated from Loy Norrix High School in June, while Frazier was a student at Phoenix High School. Counselors were available Tuesday, the first day of school, to talk to students and staff who knew the victims.

Nina Ricardo, who lives in the neighborhood, says she heard gunshots and rushed outside to round up her kids.
