WILSON, N.C. (AP) — Six teenagers have been charged in the death of a North Carolina high school student at a convenience store over the summer.
The Wilson Daily Times reports police haven’t revealed a motive or circumstances involving the July 20 shooting death of 16-year-old Luis Flores-Bravo. He attended Beddingfield High School and was involved in Junior ROTC.
Wilson police announced Friday that three 18-year-olds, a 17-year-old and 16-year-old were all charged with first-degree murder and attempted robbery and being held without bond. Police Sgt. Steve Stroud said a 15-year-old also was charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder. Officials say his bond hearing is Monday.
The victim’s family describes Luis as an innocent bystander who would often walk to the Speedway store to get a snack or soda and return home.
