A 15-year-old boy has been charged with killing a baby and wounding the baby's father in Watts.

Police say they've arrested Donald Dokins in connection with the June 4 shooting. The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office says 14-month-old Angel Cortez was in his father's arms when a gunman rode up on a bike and fired several shots.

The baby died at a local hospital; his father was hit in the shoulder.

Dokins will be arraigned Friday and will be tried as an adult. If convicted, he could face several life sentences.
