NEW YORK (AP) - A baby-faced 16-year-old and four other young men have been arraigned on attempted murder charges in a Bronx shooting that left an innocent bystander in critical condition.

The suspects did not enter pleas on Thursday. They are being held until their next court date, on Nov. 23.

Prosecutors say 15-year-old Vada Vasquez was shot in the head as she walked home from school. She is in a medically induced coma.

Prosecutors say the suspects had targeted 19-year-old Tyrone Creighton after his brothers got involved in a fight at Rikers Island prison. He has a bullet in his lung.

The attorney for the suspected shooter says his client is innocent. Other attorneys did not return calls seeking comment. The mother of 2 of them said outside court her sons were innocent.
