The 14-year-old accused of shooting another teenager appeared in court Tuesday.
Aaron Nathaniel did not testify in court Tuesday. He is accused of shooting 16-year-old Timi Oyebola in the head while he was playing basketball at Chester Playground on Sept. 21.
Nathaniel is facing second-degree murder charges.
Police say Oyebola was not the intended target of the shooting. His Queens family gathered over the weekend to say a final goodbye to the teen, remembering him as a good-natured boy who loved basketball.
Nathaniel is due back in court for his arraignment on Oct. 18. A grand jury will decide whether to send his case to trial.
