South Bend A teen charged as an adult in the death of a toddler is scheduled to be in court Wednesday morning.
Two-year-old john Swoveland Jr. was playing outside back in April, when he was killed by a stray bullet. The shooting was part of gang violence.
Wednesday morning, Malcolm Buchanon, 17, will be in court. It's alleged the gang Buchanon was involved in, was prepared to fight one from the west side.
One of the members was apparently "jumped" by a member of the west side gang the day before and wanted to retaliate.
Buchanon is charged with gang enhancement and assisting a criminal.
