The grand jury declined to indict Angel.

Investigators said two groups were fighting outside a home on Morse Avenue when shots were fired. At least one of those bullets went into the house where Mackenna Kronenberger was in her bedroom.

Kronenberger, a sophomore at Carroll High School,  was taken to the hospital where she died from her injuries.
