A Boston Juvenile Court judge today set bail of $250,000 for two teens charged with shooting a third at the Jamaica Plain housing complex yesterday, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.
Should the younger of the two - 15 - somehow make bail, he still would be forced to remain in DYS custody, because Judge Paul Lewis also granted a request from prosecutors to revoke his earlier bail on open assault-and-battery and trespassing charges, the DA's office says.
Aoccording to prosecutors, the 15-year-old, from Dorchester, and a 17-year-old from Roxbury showed up at Horan Way at Bromley-Heath around 4:15 p.m. and opened fire on a third teen, 18. He was hit in the upper left chest and is expected to recover; several cars were also hit in the barrage.
Police found the younger teen near Huntington and South Huntington, a Lorcin .280-caliber semiautomatic in his right pants pocket, the DA's office reports. The older teen got nabbed at Parker and Alleghany on the other side of Mission Hill. The DA's office says that kid was actually spotted running toward Tremont with two other youths.
