ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A 14-year-old turned himself in for the killing of a man on Thursday.

Police said Jevyn Steadman walked into the Southeast Substation and gave himself up.


He's accused of shooting Lawrence Howard on Wednesday San Pedro and Kathryn.

A person who was rendering aid to Howard said the incident began when Jevyn got into a fight with his father.

She said Howard told Jevyn to step outside with him. That's when a gunshot was heard, and the woman found Howard on the ground.

She said Jevyn told her something to the effect of, "I'm sorry, I didn't mean it" before he ran off. 

Police believe Jevyn stole the gun from his father's friend.

 Jevyn faces an open count of murder.
