SEATTLE (AP) — A 16-year-old boy has been charged with murder in connection with the fatal shooting of a man near a West Seattle bus stop after an altercation.

Police say Ahmed was riding a bus that night and irritating other passengers by repeatedly pulling the stop cord without exiting.

Police say the driver and passengers expressed frustration with Ahmed and that Fehlen argued with Ahmed.
