A 17-year-old has been charged with involuntary manslaughter after a 14-year-old girl was shot to death when the two of them were playing with a handgun Wednesday on the West Side, police said Saturday.

The shooting happened around 2:15 p.m. Wednesday inside a home in the 700 block of North Homan, according to the Chicago Police Department.

The Chicago teenager — whose name wasn’t released because he was charged as a juvenile — and the girl, Tracy Davis, were playing with the gun when it went off, according to the police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. The girl, who lived in the 4400 block of West Adams, was shot in the head and was dead at the scene.

The boy ran way after the shooting but later made arrangements to turn himself in, according to the police, who said detectives recovered the gun.
