BURLINGTON, N.C. — A 16-year-old has been charged with involuntary manslaughter after a shooting in a North Carolina home.

Burlington Police say the teen was arrested after 21-year-old Timothy Brown Jr. was found wounded Friday evening.

Police originally charged the girl with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.

But in a statement, police say the charge was upgraded after Brown died from his injuries two days later at the hospital.

Authorities have not said what led to the shooting or how the girl and Brown might have known each other.
