Teen headed to trial in point-blank shooting death of friend

Posted: Updated:

A Mid-Michigan teen is going to trial for the open murder of his friend.

Deputy Chief Assistant Prosecutor John Potbury said a judge found probable cause to send 17-year-old Abdurrahman “Abdu” Akl to trial on charges of second-degree murder and one count of felony murder.

The charges stem from the March 2017 shooting death of 18-year-old Brady Morris. Investigators said Akl and Morris were friends and living together at Akl’s home on Moffit Drive in Fenton Township.

Investigators claim Akl shot Morris in the head at point-blank range. The two were known to play Russian Roulette, but officials believed that was not the case in this incident.

Akl's attorney had been adamant that the tragic event was an accident.

Both teens attended Lake Fenton High School during the 2015-2016 school year.
