CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A 19-year-old accused in the 2015 shooting death of 17-year-old Kelsie Crow has been indicted on two counts of murder, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters announced.

A grand jury indicted Rico Mosley on two counts of murder (Special Felony) and four counts of felonious assault (Felony 2). If convicted of all charges, he faces the possibility of life in prison.

While leaving a Sweet 16 birthday party at Melrose YMCA in April of last year, Crow was struck in the neck by a stray bullet which lodged in her back. She succumbed to her injuries.

At least 100 teens were outside the building when nearly 30 shots were fired, according to police. Two other teens also suffered gunshot wounds.

Kelsie and the other two teens who were shot were not believed to be intended targets, Deters said in a release.

“The gratuitous use of firearms by young violent criminals is out of control.  And it is unacceptable," Prosecutor Deters said. "The mentality of aiming a gun toward a group of people and mindlessly firing it would boggle any rational person’s mind."
