ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) -- An 18-year-old man has been charged with involuntary manslaughter in the fatal shooting of another teenager inside a home in the Alexandria section of Fairfax County.

Police say Leon Johnson was charged Thursday. The shooting occurred on Monday evening at a home a block away from where Johnson lives.

Sixteen-year-old Kevin Johnson was killed in the shooting. Police say Kevin Johnson is not related to Leon Johnson. A 14-year-old boy was also shot and wounded.

Police have declined to release additional details about the circumstances of the shooting. The Washington Post has reported that according to a search warrant, Johnson ran out of the house saying "I'm sorry, I'm sorry," after the teens were shot.
