2 teens charged in fatal Tacoma, Wash., shootingNovember 28, 2012 @ 11:24 pm
TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - The Pierce County prosecutor has charged two 16-year-old self-described gang members with first-degree murder in the Nov. 18 fatal shooting of a man in a Tacoma convenience store parking lot.
Prosecutor Mark Lindquist said Wednesday that 45-year-old David Watson was driving around south Tacoma, looking for his dog when he encountered the teens. Lindquist says they demanded money, then shot Watson, who died a few hours later.
A lawyer for one teen entered a not guilty plea on his behalf Wednesday. Bail was set at $1 million. An arrest warrant has been issued for the second teen.
Lindquist says the two youths, in his words, "committed adult-sized crimes and will be prosecuted as adults."
