KANSAS CITY, Kan. - A 15-year-old boy has been charged in the shooting death of Brannae Browne in Kansas City, Kansas. 

The teen was charged in Wyandotte County Juvenile Court. He faces charges of first-degree felony murder, criminal discharge of a firearm into an occupied dwelling and criminal use of a weapon. 

KCK police responded to a shooting around 6:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 2, near 5th and Freeman.

When officers arrived, they found a teenage girl who had been fatally shot. Two others suffered minor injuries. 

Police have identified the victim as Brannae Browne, 15, of KCK. Browne was a sophomore at JC Harmon High School.  

Police said the preliminary investigation reveals that unknown suspects drove by and fired shots at the victim striking her. KCK police are looking for two men with rifles in a white Chevy Malibu. The car has temporary tags and tinted windows.

Members of the Chelsea Plaza apartment community called for an end to the violence Monday.

"It's all sad. What is it for, you know," said Darius Harris. "You gotta think about what's the cause and effect of this. You're affecting peoples' lives. Mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, uncles and aunts. There's a lot of people getting hurt because of that."

Anyone with information is asked to call KCK police or the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.
