The suspect arrested in last week's mass drive-by shooting on North Capitol Street has been ordered held without bond.

Authorities say 19-year-old Craig Steven Wilson of southeast Washington appeared in court this weekend on a charge of assault with intent to kill. A preliminary hearing was set for April 4 in the case.

Wilson was one of two men being sought in connection with last Monday's early morning shooting outside an apartment building that injured 13 people.

According to charging documents in the case, Wilson was wearing a GPS ankle bracelet and was being monitored by the Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency. The GPS device places Wilson near the scene of the shooting.

Police found ballistic evidence showing four separate handguns were used in the shooting.
