AURORA, Colo. (KDVR) — Police say a 16-year-old boy surrendered Monday in the shooting death of a teen outside an Aurora mall.
The boy was booked on felony counts of second-degree murder and aggravated robbery, according to the Aurora Police Department. He also faces a traffic offense of failing to report an accident to police.
Police on Monday had announced a warrant for the teen. While interim Aurora Police Chief Art Acevedo said it was on a count of first-degree murder, the department said Tuesday that the chief misspoke.
Police did not identify the boy because he is a minor. He was advised of the charges on Tuesday morning.
More suspects remain at large in the killing, according to the department.
