A 19-year-old male died today after a shooting on Winbourne Avenue.

Frankie Hamilton, 19, and a 16-year-old male got into an argument outside of Hamilton's house yesterday around 5:45 a.m. Police say the argument was over a cell phone, and it eventually escalated into a fight. The suspect then pulled out a handgun and shot Hamilton in the head.

Hamilton was transported to a hospital and was in critical condition until his death.

The suspect has been charged with 2nd degree murder, illegal use of a weapon and illegal possession of a handgun by a juvenile.
