Authorities in Frederick, Maryland, have charged a 17-year-old boy in a shooting that left an 18-year-old woman dead and another teen wounded.

Genesis Marie McCarter-Berretto died after she was shot in the upper body at a party early Sunday at a home in the 1800 block of Weybridge Road. Another person, a teenage boy, was shot in the lower leg.

Frederick police responded about 1:45 a.m. First responders tried to save McCarter-Berretto, but she was pronounced dead.

Ean Lanell Davis-Lattimore was arrested by Frederick police shortly before 9 a.m. Sunday and charged as an adult with murder, attempted murder and assault.

Police have said the shooting apparently was the result of a fight that broke out at a party.

Neither McCarter-Berretto nor the second victim were believed to be the shooter's intended targets, The Frederick News-Post reported. The gunman shot back toward the house from outside, an officer told the paper.
