Lesean Jackson, 17, was charged with first-degree murder today as the shooter in 10-year-old Arthur Jones's death. Jackson is the third teenager charged in the case; Steven McCaskill, also 17, was charged with first-degree murder last week for obtaining the gun, and a 14-year-old was charged as a juvenile for allegedly getting the gun from McCaskill and giving it to Jackson.

According to the police McCaskill is a member of the Black P Stones, and the shots were fired as part of an on-going conflict with the Gangster Disciples.

Jones's funeral is tomorrow at 10am at the Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church on 45th and Princeton.
