UPDATED: A 17-year-old boy was charged Thursday in connection with the July 10 shooting death of a Manassas teen of the same age, according to City of Manassas police.
On July 11, the 17-year-old boy, a resident of Washington, D.C., was taken into custody in connection with the July 10 shooting death of a 17-year-old City of Manassas boy, said Officer Sarah Maroney, spokeswoman for the City of Manassas Police Department.
