JESREY CITY, N.J. (AP) - Three teenage boys face charges in the shooting death of a high school student who was gunned down last month moments after he placed an order at a fried chicken restaurant.
Hudson County prosecutors say a 16-year-old is charged with the Dec. 26 murder of Judane Holmes, while a 14-year-old and a 15-year-old are charged with murder as accomplices. All three boys also face weapons charges.
The arrests were announced Tuesday. But the suspects' names were not disclosed due to their ages.
Authorities haven't disclosed a motive for the shooting of the 16-year-old Holmes. He was shot by a masked man moments after he stepped away from the counter of the Jersey City restaurant.
Holmes was the third teenager killed in shootings in Jersey City since September.
