CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) - A second person is charged in the unintentional shooting death of a 15 year-old Cedar Rapids boy.

Queshandis Seals, 20, of Waterloo, is charged with control of a firearm by a felon and obstructing prosecution. Cedar Rapids police say he was arrested Monday at the Linn County jail in connection with the shooting death of 15 year-old Senquez Jackson at a home in southeast Cedar Rapids on March 18.

Dennis Warren, 13, is charged with involuntary manslaughter in Jackson's death. Police say the two were handling a gun and had removed the clip but left a round in the chamber, which fired, hitting Jackson. Criminal complaints in that case say the gun used in the shooting did not belong to Warren but that he gave it to someone later on the day of the shooting

Criminal complaints obtained by The Gazette indicate Seals received that gun on the day of the shooting. The complaint says Seals gave that gun to another person the next day.

Cedar Rapids police declined to elaborate on what happened to the gun used in the Jackson death but a spokesperson said police have not recovered the gun used.
