Cook County state's attorney's spokeswoman Tandra Simonton says the 13-year-old, unidentified because of his age, was charged Monday as a juvenile in the shooting Sunday of 16-year-old Raymond Galloway. The victim was visiting his cousin's home when the shooting occurred.

Authorities say Galloway was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he died Monday.

Cook County Circuit Judge Stuart Katz on Monday ordered the 13-year-old held in custody. It wasn't immediately known if the teen has legal representation.

Chicago police say it's unclear how the alleged shooter obtained the gun.
