LARGO – Two 17-year-old boys were charged with the shooting Monday (May 5) of a 14-year-old girl in the unincorporated Largo area, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said.

The girl was shot twice in her left arm. She was taken to Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital for non-life threatening injuries and released later that night.

Kaiden Jeremy Horning, 17, of Clearwater, was charged with one count each of Attempted Murder and Second Degree Throwing a Deadly Missile into a Building. Gerald Randall Robinson III, also 17, of Largo, was charged with one count each of Aggravated Battery with Deadly weapon (Accessory) and Throwing a Deadly Missile into a Building (Accessory).

According to deputies, about 9:20 p.m. Monday, Robinson and Horning drove together to a home in the unincorporated Largo area along with other juveniles in another vehicle to fight with a girl at the location.

Deputies said Robinson parked on the street and remained in the car while Horning got out of the vehicle and walked towards a group of juveniles gathered outside. Horning pulled out a firearm and the majority of the juveniles ran inside the house. Horning fired several shots towards the group and the home.

Horning returned to the vehicle and Robinson drove them away from the scene.

A 14-year-old girl who was unable to retreat inside was struck twice in her left arm. Deputies discovered at least one round struck the exterior of the house. Inside the home at the time was a small child who was unharmed.
