The fatal shooting happened in May at a graduation house party in the 500 block of Delery Street.

The shootout appears to be a retaliation from an earlier shooting. Peters and two other teenagers were struck by gunfire. Peters did not survive her injuries.

“Todriana would have turned 13 this month if not for the senseless actions of these young men,” said Williams.

The people indicted include: Brodgerick Andrews, 17; Raquian Bell, 19; B-Jon Jarrow, 20; Ahmahj Lynch, 21; Samuel Mack, 18; Albert Major 20; Dorian Ratliff, 20; Tyrese Riley 20; Marcus Venible, 18; and Pernell Young, 20.

"There are different degrees of participation in this case," said Williams.
"All of them played a role in a beautiful 12-year-old girl losing her life and they will all held accountable. Any role, no matter how small or slight, in taking a life in Orleans Parish, is a major one."
