An arrest has been made in the stray bullet shooting death of a 12-year-old girl in Paterson, New Jersey.

Genesis Rincon was hit in the head as she rode her scooter Saturday evening. She was pronounced brain dead and taken off life support two days ago.

Jhymiere Moore, a 19-year-old, turned himself in around midnight on Tuesday. He is being charged with first-degree murder among other second-degree charges and is being held at $2 million bail.

Authorities believe that the bullet was not intended to Rincon, but someone else.
