A 15-year-old boy accused of opening fire at a high school basketball game in Dallas last week has now been charged with murder after one of his victims died.

Marc Strickland, 18, died Saturday, a week after he was shot in the chest at Ellis Davis Field House during a game, according to the Dallas Police Department.

On Jan. 11, during a game between South Oak Cliff and Kimball high schools, gunfire rang out during a fight in the stands, police said. More than 600 people were in the building at the time.

The 15-year-old, who has not been publicly identified because he is a minor, turned himself in the next day and was charged with aggravated assault, but the charges will now be upgraded to murder after Strickland’s death, according to police.

After the shooting, Dallas Independent School District Superintendent Michael Hinojosa announced security measures at school sporting events, including metal detectors and bans on purses and backpacks.
