Two adults and two other teens were previously charged in the shooting of 12-year-old Abdel Latif Bashiti on Nov. 24.

In total, six boys were injured in the shooting. 

Police said five boys — ages 14 and 16 — were standing outside a row of stores on Buckeye Road around 7:30 p.m. when the guns were pulled and shots were fired. 

Bashiti went outside with his father — the owner of a beauty supply store in the area — to see what was going on. That's when he was shot.
