A judge has found probable cause for the charges against a teenager accused in a murder believed to have triggered a chain of retaliatory violence in southeast D.C.

Nineteen-year-old Sanquan Carter is charged with second-degree murder in the March 22 shooting death of Jordan Howe. The next day, Carter's brother, Orlando, was shot. On March 30, gunmen sprayed bullets into a crowd of people who had just attended Howe's funeral.

Orlando Carter, Nathaniel Simms and a juvenile have been charged in the driveby shooting. Orlando Carter is also charged in Howe's death.

At todays preliminary hearing , D.C. Superior Court, Judge Lynn Leibovitz found prosecutors had enough evidence for the case to proceed and ordered Carter to be held without bond.

Prosecutors also submitted a motion to consolidate the cases.
