A central Ohio teen has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for firing a gun that accidentally shot his younger brother. Back in February, 17-year-old Andrew Keller was at Easton Town Center near the Apple store when a fight broke out. The teen shot the gun in the air in an attempt to scare the other teens away, however, a bullet struck Keller’s 15-year-old brother, Andrake, in the head.

The teen was transported to Nationwide Children’s Hospital where he remained in critical condition for two days before he passed.

In an attempt to promote peace throughout Columbus area neighborhoods, former NBA and current European and Asian basketball player, Leon Rodgers, is hosting the 5th Annual RNB “Battle for Peace” Classic on Saturday, July 9, 2011. The event will take place at 10am at Columbus East High School.

The event will include a Battle of the Bands contest, a step show exhibition and a 3-on-3 outdoor youth tournament. In addition, Channel 10′s own Tanisha Mallet will be hosting a banquet at Arlington Cafe on July 8. Attendees who have personally been impacted by violence will hear inspirational messages from community leaders about the needs to end violence in our city.

Radio One’s Paul Strong will be leading the peace rally on July 9 alongside host, City News. In addition, Deputy Chief Blackwell will be speaking at both the peace rally and banquet, and Mayor Michael Coleman will also be in attendance.
