Charges filed in deadly South Bend shooting // WSBT 22

In a St Joseph County investigation, charges have been filed against a teen manslaughter suspect Sunday following a deadly shooting in South Bend last Thursday.

Investigators allege, the shooting death of 17-year-old D'Angelo Jennings happened after an argument and a simple game of dice.

Investigators say a game of dice turned deadly.

It happened Thursday at this home on the 1800 block of North Johnson Street.

Court records show St. Joseph County prosecutors charged 18-year-old Torreay Fennessee with one count of voluntary manslaughter.

Investigators say a group of young men were hanging out at the home.

Witnesses say everyone was "shooting dice and listening to music."

That includes Fennessee and the young victim D'Angelo Jennings.

A witness told investigators, Fennesse had a disagreement over a girl with Jennings.

After taking their tough talk outside to fight without handguns, witnesses say the pair "shook hands as if everything was done."

Then when the teens returned to their dice game, witnesses say "Fennesse got up and shot Jennings in the head."

One person says they "could hear that a dice game was going on right before they heard a shot."

Detectives say police found Fennessee hiding in a crawlspace of a relative's home trying to hide from them.

Court records say Fennessy admitted he shot Jennings.

Police say Fennessy says he was quote, "beefing" with Jennings and that Jennings had previously threatened to shoot Fennesse's child.

The game ended and Investigators say everyone left the home after they realized Jennings had died.

Fennessee is facing a sentencing enhancement for having a firearm.

He's being held without bond.

He is expected to be brought up on formal charges in court on Tuesday.
