Authorities in Cleveland say another man and another juvenile have been arrested in the death of a 9-year-old girl struck by an errant gunshot during an exchange of fire nearby.

U.S. marshals say an 18-year-old man was taken into custody and a 16-year-old boy surrendered to authorities Tuesday. Two 19-year-old men and two 17-year-old boys were arrested earlier in the fatal shooting of Saniyah Nicholson.

The Maple Heights girl was sitting in the back seat of a car with an adult sister June 20 when teens in a car exchanged gunfire with teens on foot. Saniyah was shot in the head and died at a hospital.
