Detroit — A Detroit teen accused of shooting another 15-year-old was given a $7,000 personal bond, officials said.

In addition, a judge ordered him to not have any contact with the victim's family during the course of his legal proceedings, the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office said. The judge scheduled the defendant's next court appearance for Oct. 1.

The teen was charged Friday with careless discharge of a weapon causing death. For adults, the charge is a misdemeanor punishable by up to two years in prison.

Police were called at about 1:40 a.m. Sept. 15 to a home in the 16600 block of Belton near Tireman and Greenfield on the city's west side. They found the victim lying in the rear bedroom, unresponsive, officials said. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.
