Authorities say a 16-year-old Pennsylvania youth is facing a criminal homicide charge after another teen reported receiving a video from him saying he had just killed someone and showing “the legs and feet of someone covered in blood.” Bensalem police said the girl’s mother called 911 Friday and officers sent to the mobile home found a juvenile female deceased on the bathroom floor with an apparent gunshot wound. The youth fled but was later arrested and charged with criminal homicide, possessing instruments of crime and evidence-tampering. Authorities said in an affidavit of probable cause that he said “it was an accident.” Court documents don't list an attorney.
