Juvenile charged in mass shootings

WASHINGTON (AP) - D.C. police say a 14-year-old was driving a minivan involved in a drive-by shooting that killed four people and injured five others.

The boy has been charged with murder and a family court judge said Wednesday he would be held at a juvenile facility because he is a danger to himself and others, and is a flight risk.

Two adults have also been charged in Tuesday night's shooting.

At the boy's hearing, detective Oliver Garvey testified that the youth was driving a minivan witnesses described seeing at the scene. Garvey says the van pulled up to a crowd of people, stopped briefly, fired shots and took off.

Garvey says 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.
