    A 15-year-old boy was charged with murdering a man in a shooting attack in the US city of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, local media reported Saturday, citing police.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The suspect is accused of shooting the 25-year-old man in one of two reportedly unrelated homicides in the city on late Friday, according to PennLive news outlet.

    Police said the victim was in a car's passenger seat, when a second vehicle pulled up from which the suspect opened fire at the passenger, sparing the driver, according to the media.

    Police did not provide information regarding a motive for the shooting, the news outlet reported.

    The underage suspect has been charged as an adult with homicide, carrying a firearm without a license and illegal possession of a firearm, the media reported, citing police.

    Fatal shooting cases have been frequent in the United States in the past year. Earlier this months, a man who killed three people and critically wounded a child in Columbus, Ohio, was fatally shot by police. On Friday, three people were killed and nine others were injured in a shooting at a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Colorado.
