Crime Scene

 Four people, including a 16-year-old, have been indicted on charges arising from the killing of a New Orleans teenage girl and the wounding of four others in March.

District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro's office announced the charges Thursday.

Seventeen-year-old Tyneisha Muse was fatally shot in New Orleans' St. Claude neighborhood March 29. Charged with conspiracy to commit second-degree murder in her death are 20-year-old Joshua Augillard, 18-year-old Reginald Blanton and 19-year-old Corey Harris.

The 16-year-old faces charges including two attempted second-degree murder counts in other March shootings. Harris, Augillard and Blanton also face other charges in the other March attacks, including the wounding of an 18-year-old hit in the March 29 shootings that left Muse dead. The suspects will be arraigned Friday and haven't yet entered pleas.
