Police: Teen's shooting death accidental; group questioned

Police say the fatal shooting of a teen at the Pelham Parkway Houses in Allerton just days before his birthday was an accident, but people are being questioned in the case.



Authorities say several people, who are being questioned, were inside an apartment at the housing development when Ackeem Davis, 17, was fatally shot around 5 p.m. Thursday.



He was later pronounced dead at Jacobi Medical Center. Friends remember Davis, who would have turned 18 on May 24, as a nice person.



Police say a Facebook video appears to show the group playing around before the teen's shooting death.



Investigators say they are searching for the weapon. No arrests have been made in the case.
