Father and Son Arrested in Shooting of 14-Year-Old Boy

A 17-year-old kid and his stepfather were arrested today in connection to a shooting of another teen in the city's Western Addition neighborhood earlier this week.

Officer Albie Esparza says a search warrant led police to the teen and his stepfather, 39-year-old Marcus Leslie, both of whom were booked into jail. The 17-year-old, whose name is not being released because he is a juvenile, was charged with attempted homicide and assault with a deadly weapon. His father was charged with being a convicted felon and addict in possession of a firearm.

On July 21, police responded to the 1500 block of Eddy Street at about 4 p.m. on reports of a shooting. When they arrived, they found a 14-year-old boy who had been shot in the face. Investigators believe the victim was being chased by the 17-year-old, who then pulled out a gun

and shot the boy.
