LOS ANGELES – A 13-year-old boy was charged with murder yesterday in the shooting death of his 8-year-old cousin in a gang-related attack in South Los Angeles.

Prosecutors alleged that the boy used a handgun to open fire July 23 into a crowd in the courtyard of an apartment building in an apparent gang retaliation shooting. The intended target was a male who was at the scene."
