Intended target wasn't hit

The Chicago Sun-Times 
CHICAGO, Ill. — A two-year dispute led one gang member to fire multiple gunshots at another gang member on a crowded bus last week, killing an honor student, law enforcement sources said Sunday.

Michael "Mario" Pace, 16, is charged with one count of murder and five counts of attempted murder in the Thursday shooting that claimed the life of Julian High School student Blair Holt, 16, who was not the intended target.

Facing identical charges is 15-year-old Kevin Jones, who sources said gave Pace the gun. Jones knew Pace wanted to use the weapon to try to kill someone Pace had argued with on an almost "daily basis," possibly over a girl, sources said.
