Prosecutors have charged a 17-year-old with fatally shooting a 4-month-old boy as he was being bottlefed in a parked car in Los Angeles.

Prosecutors say Alfonzo Landa is to be arraigned Tuesday on charges of murdering Andrew Garcia in the shotgun attack and attempting to kill six other people on Sept 27. He is also charged with carjacking.

The shooting came after a family party was held to celebrate a baptism at a San Fernando Valley banquet hall.

Police say the baby died of a bullet to the head after Landa had an argument with a gang member standing outside the car and opened fire.

The gang member and a pregnant woman feeding the infant inside the car were injured. Four others near the car were not hit.
