Instead the youth was charged for a firearm police found in his possession when they picked him up. Police, according to Sr. Supt. Hilberto Romero, continue to gather the evidence that will make a murder charge stick.
The accused is also accused in the shooting of Glen Murillo on Friday night and police continue to investigate both cases.
Because of his age, any proceedings involving this young man are being held at the Family Court; at the age of 18 the case may be sent to the Magistrate’s and, if indicted, to the Supreme Court for trial.
