Prosecutors said that the two teens were friends with the victim's brother. One of the teens loaned the victim's younger brother a pair of pants in exchange for shoes and didn't want to return the shoes until he got the pants back, prosecutors said.

The two teens entered the home and a fight ensued, resulting in Harris shooting Wilson in the neck, prosecutors said.
