Charges Mount For Teen Held in Las Vegas Bus Stop Shooting

Charges are mounting against an 18-year-old jailed in Denver and awaiting extradition to Nevada in a school bus stop shooting.

Authorities say Nicco Tatum now also faces charges alleging he shot a 40-year-old woman in a separate argument several days earlier over the woman's dog.

Tatum faces charges of attempted murder, battery with use of a deadly weapon, carrying a concealed weapon, and possession of a stolen gun in the December fifth attack.

Tatum faces six charges of attempted murder with a deadly weapon
and six counts of battery with a deadly weapon resulting in substantial bodily harm in the December 11th shooting that left six wounded at a school bus stop.

18-year-old Dresden Williams and a 17-year-old who was charged as a juvenile are also charged in that case -- along with 20-year-old Erica Adams.

She's charged with being an accessory after the fact and with harboring a fugitive.
