A California teen faces charges after he allegedly shot and killed his best friend during a fight about getting to sit in the passenger seat of a car, authorities said.

Sergio Orozco, who is from Fontana, was arrested Monday in the shooting death of 19-year-old friend Jalen Wilson, news station KFSN reported.

The pals were leaving a party Sunday night when they reportedly started to fight over who would get to ride shotgun in a car.
