15-year-old boy charged with murder in Burlington shooting
BURLINGTON, Wash. — A 15-year-old boy has been charged with murder in the shooting death of a 16-year-old boy north of Seattle last week.
The Skagit Valley Herald reports the boy was charged Tuesday in juvenile court but a prosecuting attorney has requested a hearing to determine if the teen should be charged as an adult.
The boy is accused of shooting Angel Estrada on Thursday after a physical altercation at a Burlington apartment complex. Police say Estrada was found with multiple bullet wounds. He died at the scene.
A 17-year-old boy was charged as an adult with murder Monday for allegedly handing the gun to the 15-year-old boy.
The younger teen is being held on $500,000 bail while the older one had bail set at $250,000. Both are lodged in a juvenile detention center.
