Police said the shooting happened around 10:45 p.m. Saturday at a house party on Fulton Street. The suspect, a 17-year-old boy, was showing his friend, Cameron Hernandez Bautista, also 17, how to disassemble a handgun when the gun fired, hitting Bautista in the chest, according to police.
Bautista was taken to the hospital, where he died.
