A fourth teenage suspect has been charged as an adult in connection with the shooting in Hinkley High School’s parking lot that sent three students to the hospital.
The 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office filed charges in Arapahoe County District Court on Monday against Alejandro Carillo Hernandez, 17, in the Nov. 19 shooting, according to a news release.
Hernandez faces four counts of attempted first-degree murder, a class two felony in Colorado. Other charges also include counts of first-degree and second-degree assault and possession of a weapon on school grounds.
Hernandez is the fourth teen to be charged in connection with this shooting. Larry Renee Jefferson, Dalen Lenale Brewer and Diego Flores, all 16,are also facing the same charges.
The two Hinkley students who were shot are 17, a male and a female. The third injured student is a 16-year-old male student from APS Avenues.
A school security officer returned fire when the shooting started around noon, police said, and applied a tourniquet to one of the wounded students. One of the three was taken by ambulance to a hospital, the other two were “self-transported.” The shooting allegedly stemmed from a fight in the school’s parking lot.
