CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

A third person has been arrested in the shooting of an 11-year-old girl and the murder of a 17-year-old boy on Cleveland's west side.

Elmer Dennis IV is now behind bars.

Police say Dennis, 19-year-old Shondre Badley and a teenager are behind the shootings at West 73rd and Clark last month.

17-year-old Randall Smith died at the scene. 11-year-old Destiny Badley was shot in the eye and is being treated at Metro.

Destiny's family tells 19 Action News they believe Destiny was shot in retaliation, and was not the gunman's intended target.

Destiny is the cousin of suspect Shondre Badley.
