DENVER — A 17-year-old who was arrested in the homicide of 13-year-old Reysean Abram has been charged as an adult in the case.

Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey formally charged Lonnie White as an adult with first-degree murder Friday.

Two others have also been charged in the murder case. Keon Belton, 19, remains charged as a juvenile with first-degree murder until a decision is made on seeking a juvenile transfer hearing.

The third suspect identified as 20-year-old Marquise Lewis was also charged as an adult with first-degree murder.

Police said Abram was shot in the chest at 11:45 p.m. on Friday, August 30 in the 4700 block of Enid Way.  He was taken to a hospital but later died of his wound.

The charges allege that Lewis, Belton and White were involved in an altercation at the location, and then fired shots from a moving vehicle that struck and killed Abram.

Lewis remains in custody at the Denver Detention Center where he is being held without bond. White and Belton both remain in a juvenile detention facility where they are also being held without bond.
