Teens in Las Vegas Drive-By Slaying Identified as Gang Members

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Prosecutors say two teens who face murder charges in the drive-by slaying of a Las Vegas high school sophomore will be tried as gang members.

That means 18-year-old Ezekiel Williams and 16-year-old Gerald Q. Davison could face stiffer sentences if they are convicted of charges that also include attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon and conspiracy.

The two teens are accused of being in a car from which shots were fired Feb. 15, killing 15-year-old Christopher Privett near Palo Verde High School.

Prosecutors allege Williams, the driver, made a U-turn and urged Davison to shoot toward a group of teens who police say flashed
gang symbols toward their car.
