Accused teenage gunman in court
A teenager accused in a fatal shooting -- believed to have set off a chain of retaliatory violence in Southeast Washington that ended with a drive-by shooting in which four people died -- is due back in court Monday.
Nineteen-year-old Sanquan Carter is charged with second-degree murder in the March 22 killing of Jordan Howe. A day after Howe's killing, Carter's brother, Orlando, was shot. Then on March 30, gunmen sprayed bullets into a crowd of people who had just attended Howe's funeral.
Orlando Carter, Nathaniel Simms and a juvenile have been charged in the drive-by shooting. Orlando Carter is also charged in Howe's killing.
Sanquan Carter's preliminary hearing in D.C. Superior Court began Wednesday and continues Monday.
Orlando Carter and Simms have a hearing scheduled for Thursday.
