LAS VEGAS (AP) - A court official in Las Vegas says a judge denied bail for a teenager accused of driving a car from which shots were fired, killing a high school sophomore earlier this month.
Prosecutors called 18-year-old Ezekiel Williams a danger to the community.
They told a judge he was involved in a shooting the night before the Feb. 15 slaying of 15-year-old Christopher Privett near Palo Verde High School.
Williams and 16-year-old Gerald Q. Davison face 12 felony charges including murder, attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon and conspiracy in the shooting that killed Privett.
Prosecutors allege Williams made a U-turn and urged Davison to shoot toward a group of teens who police say flashed gang symbols toward their car.
A judge has set a preliminary hearing for both teens on March 19.
