Charges In LA Shooting

A Los Angeles county filed charges against the teenager accused of shooting 14-year old Lawrence King. Prosecutors on Thursday charged a 14-year-old boy with attempted murder and said he committed a hate crime in the classroom shooting of an eighth-grader who was declared brain dead.” The attempted murder rap will be upgraded when doctors take King off his ventilator, which is keeping his organs oxygenated for donation.
