WASHINGTON (AP) A 14-year-old charged with first-degree murder in the drive-by shootings in which four people died has been ordered held at a secure juvenile facility. At a juvenile intake hearing Wednesday afternoon in D.C. Superior Court's Family Court, Judge Elizabeth Wingo described the teenager as being a danger to himself and others and a flight risk.
Two adults have also been charged in Tuesday night's shootings.
Detective Oliver Garvey testified at the hearing that the youth was the driver of a minivan that witnesses described seeing at the scene. Garvey said the vehicle pulled up to a crowd of people, stopped briefly, fired shots and took off.
Garvey said police chased the van into Prince George's County in Maryland and back into Washington and saw an AK-47 type weapon thrown from the van.
