15-Year-Old Identified as Shooting Suspect

15-Year-Old Identified as Shooting Suspect

When police were called to a shooting last week in Peoria, news sources say that the suspect was a 15-year-old boy. Now, despite being a minor, the 15-year-old will be prosecuted as an adult in the state of Arizona. J.L., a Phoenix resident, was charged with two counts of first-degree murder after an incident at a smoke shop in Peoria last week. By the time that police arrived on the scene of the shooting, two people had died and one person was seriously injured.

Police shut down the building as they initially believed that the suspect was hiding inside. Once they realized that a 15 minute gap of time had elapsed between the shooting and the 911 call, they assumed that he fled before the police even arrived. Based on a description provided by the remaining witness, police were able to identify and locate the suspect, J.L. Reports indicate that the surviving victim was shot in the hip and is expected to make a full recovery and that the shop's owner fled before J.L. started firing.
