LOS ANGELES (AP) — Two reputed Los Angeles gang members will be arraigned for the killing of a 5-year-old boy who was shot as he posed for Halloween costume photos in his backyard.

Marcus Denson, 18, and 21-year-old Leonard Hall could face life in prison if they’re convicted of murder and attempted murder. Both remained jailed Friday on $4 million bail each.

Prosecutors claim the suspects opened fire on a South Los Angeles backyard on Oct. 31, shooting Aaron Shannon Jr. in the head as he posed in his Spider-Man costume. Two of his relatives were wounded.

Authorities say the gangsters mistakenly thought rivals lived at the home.
