Arrest In TG Teen Shooting
by Newscenter Staff
(New York City)  A 20 year old Brooklyn man was arrested Thursday and charged in the shooting of a 14 year old transgendered teen.

Police said that Jamel Stevens became enraged after discovering the 14 year old with whom he had sex was biologically male.

The teen, whose name is being withheld because of her age, was shot four times February 21 in the Bedford-Stuyvesant area. Police said she was struck twice in the left arm and once in each of her legs. The teen was hospitalized for a week at Kings County Hospital Center

The teenager had been living as a female for nearly a year, and police said she had engaged in sex with Stevens for cash. When Stevens bragged of his sexual exploit people in the neighborhood told him that the girl was born male.  He then went home and returned with a gun.
