Harrisburg police are reviewing a photograph of a 15-year-old boy they charged as an adult in a fatal shooting this week.

The photo of Niejea Stern posing with a firearm has been circulating on social media.

Stern is charged with criminal homicide in the killing of 18-year-old Malik Jones, who died early Tuesday after a bullet entered a rear passenger window and struck him in the neck while driving in Hall Manor.

Investigators have said Jones was struck by a rare slug.

Friends said Jones was the father of four children under the age of two and is a cousin to Stern.
