Douglas said Rosenthal is charged with manslaughter and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.

Diggins was shot and killed inside of a home on Jackson Avenue in the early morning hours. When police arrived at the home, around 4:45, Diggins was pronounced dead at the scene. He was only 16 years-old. Douglas said he had been shot and was lying on the floor.
