A total of five teenagers are charged as adults in connection with last weekend's fatal stabbing inside the Woodley Park Metro station in Northwest D.C., according to the Associated Press.
Olijawon Griffin, 18, of Olney Maryland was killed last Saturday. Police say Griffin had been robbed by a group of young people in Adams Morgan. Griffin and a friend later spotted the group of alleged robbers inside the Metro station, where the stabbing took place.
A total of nine juveniles were detained after the incident. Police last week charged one of them, 17-year-old Chavez Tyrek Myers, with second degree murder as an adult. Now, four other juveniles are being charged as adults. They face armed robbery charges and will likely make their first appearance in court later today.
